A. Introduction
---------------------------------------------------------------------
A1. What the &^#$ is this thing?

This guide is here to give you an insight into the Grand Theft Auto 
universe.  It deals with the main storyline of the games and tries to 
make connects wherever possible to help you see the 'big picture' and 
how everything is related.  Each game is really a part of a larger 
world and hopefully this guide will help you see that.  If not, then I 
have failed in life.  This guide will go through a chronological 
timeline of the games giving the stories and plots.  The guide will 
also go into background and some history on the major gangs or groups 
in the series and then will deal with main characters related to the 
storyline.  Of course, the guide won't get into every single background 
story to each building or group simply because there would be too much 
data and I would probably be an old man by the time I finish writing 
this.  GTA Advance is a different story then the other modern GTAs.  
Some of it is cannon but then there are other facts that don't make 
sense.  And since I don't have a Game Boy I don't see myself playing 
this.  Therefore, GTA Advance will be left out of the storyline and may 
only be referenced once or twice.  However, if there is something that 
you feel is important to the storyline then email me and I will try to 
include it.

Please not that this guide contains all information about the Grand 
Theft Auto storylines.  That means SPOILERS!  It is all discussed here 
so if you want to be surprised then you should not read further.  Go 
play the game and come back.  I'll wait.

OK, you done?  Good now here we will continue.

This guide will be a comprehensive look at the Grand Theft Auto series 
but will not include GTA 1, GTA London, or GTA 2.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
A2. Why not GTA 1, GTA London, and GTA 2?

Well the main problem with these games is that they don't have a fixed 
year.  It isn't specified in 1 or 2.  Yes, London is set in the 60's 
but it follows the ideas and flow of the 1st series of games.  GTA III 
was basically the start of the "true" series and storyline aspect.  
Also, GTA 1 didn't have a set lead character.  So my description would 
be "some guy runs around doing jobs for some people".  Now, you don't 
want crap like that in here do you?  Do you?

So these games will be left out of this guide.  One day I may do some 
info from them like a 'history of GTA' or something but for now they 
are gone.

A3. Meet the Author

My name is Matthew Vetere and I'm a 22 year old gamer.  I have been 
playing video games since as far as I can remember.  I originally 
started out on the old Atari system with my cousins but moved to better 
technology after.  I began my love for writing long after I had 
finished college and school and I do regret not taking some writing 
courses.  But I specialized in Accounting and now work for the Town of 
Markham which is just north of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  It's a good 
town as they are very environmentally friendly here.

My first writing experiences came on a former site of mine as I would 
review wrestling shows, PPVs, and write columns.  I'm still a big 
wrestling fan but video games are my true hobby.  I currently write 
reviews for TheScratchPost.com and I am thankful at the opportunity 
they have provided me.  This is my first guide experience and I really 
enjoyed it.  Getting into the details and all that.  The Grand Theft 
Auto series along with the Metal Gear Solid series would be my 
favourite games of all time.  They are just 2 masterfully done series 
and I am biting my nails waiting for GTA4 and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns 
of the Patriots for the PS3.

Well I think that covers it for now.  If anyone wants to know more or 
wants me to write about something specific then email me.  Or you can 
find me posting on the forum at Stablewars.com.

A4. Submissions/ Contact Info.

As thorough as I feel that I have been in this document I know that it 
isn't perfect.  Nothing is ever perfect.  Therefore, if you see any 
problems or if you have any suggestions then contact me.  If your 
submission is new or better information or just a different idea then 
it will be added and you will be credited.  Also if you have any 
comments about the series or anything like that.  My contact email is:  
MATTVSIN (at) GMAIL (dot) COM

Simple enough email I believe.  I also check it everyday so I should be 
a good contact if you have a question.  Thanks to everyone that has 
emailed me so far and given their feedback or additional information.

=====================================================================
B. Locations 

The Grand Theft Auto universe (GTA 3 to GTA San Andreas) has been 
portrayed in five different cities.  They are all based on real-world 
cities.  When in the game you can notice the similarities between the 
cities and their real-world counterparts.  The most significant 
features will stand out (the hills and streetcars of San Fierro, the 
crime and pollution of Los Santos, the Miami Vice carbon copy of Vice 
City).  Below is a list of each city in the GTA universe, some 
information, and its corresponding real-world city.

----------------------------------------------------------- 
B1. Liberty City                        
 
Based on: New York City, NY
Population: Approx. 4 million
Comments: Motorcycle operation/ ownership banned in 2001. 
 
Composed of three islands attached by tunnels, bridges, and ferry 
lines.  These islands in Liberty City are: Portland, Staunton Island 
and Shoreside Vale. Portland is the industrial sector of the city.  It 
contains the poor neighbourhoods, docks, red light districts, 
warehouses, etc...  Portland is also the home to several criminal 
organizations including the Italian Mafia, Chinese Triads, and the 
Diablos.  Staunton Island would be considered the commercial and 
business sectors.  With skyscrapers, a huge park, and a casino it is 
the heart of the city.  Crime gangs like the Yakuza and the Yardies 
find their hoems here.  Shoreside Vale is primarily the residential 
area.  Upon entering the island one discovers a huge international 
airport (Francis Intl. Airport).  Moving further along, the upper class 
housing  is located here but several poor neighbourhoods still exist 
(such as Wichita Gardens).  There is also a small industrial area 
located north of the airport.  Liberty would be the most-featured city 
in the GTA universe. It has been featured in five of the games.  GTA 
III, Advance, and Liberty City Stories were entirely set in the city.  
Vice City and San Andreas have opening credits that start in Liberty 
City and during each game there are constant references back to the 
city.  San Andreas even has a mission that is in Liberty City.

Liberty City is a town ruled by gangs and gang violence.  There are 
numerous gangs based on real-world ones.  Yakuza, Triads, mafia, and 
several others are all based on their real-world counterparts.  While 
there are some allies between the gangs the bonds are weak and it 
usually doesn't take much to start a gang war.  No one group can 
control the city for too long as there are just too many gangs in the 
same struggle for power and the strongest usually become the target for 
all other groups.

The city is frequently referred to as 'the worst place in America'.

Games located in city: GTA 3, GTA Advance, GTA Liberty City Stories 

----------------------------------------------------------- 
B2. Vice City                          
 
Based on: Miami, FL
Population: 1.8 Million in 1986.
Comments: Enormous tax increases in the 1980's.

Vice City is a unique city.  Its southern location provides for warm 
weather all year long while this also positions it close to the 
Caribbean.  Legal and illegal immigration is a huge factor in the 
city's population growth during the 1980's.  Cubans, Haitians, 
Mexicans, and Dominican immigrants all call this place home.  Vice City 
consists of 2 primary islands.  The east island contains an enormous 
beach, a huge shopping mall, clubs, a beach front district, apartment 
complexes, hotels and boating docks.  The west island contains most of 
the immigrant areas with Little Haiti and Little Havana being the 
largest areas.  Escobar Intl. Airport is located here as well as the 
Fort Baxter Military Air Base.  Hyman Memorial Stadium attracts crowds 
with demolition derbies and other violent car activities.  The west 
island is also the business side of the city with shipping docks and 
industrial areas.  Located in the centre of the 2 islands are a few 
smaller ones.  Starfish Island contains a gated community of wealthy 
Vice City citizens.  Leafs Links Golf Course is located on these 
islands as well and provides a premiere golf experience.

Gangs and racism are big issues in Vice City.  Thanks to its southern 
location and proximity to the Caribbean, most of the gangs are 
immigrants.  Groups of Cubans and Haitians have set themselves up in 
Vice City and developed their own areas within the city.  The primary 
income for most gangs is the sale of drugs.  Most drugs get imported 
from the Caribbean and sold at a huge mark up to the Vice City 
population.  Corrupt businessmen and politicians hold the real power 
over the city.  Paying off the law or changing laws and legislation is 
how they maintain that power.

----------------------------------------------------------- 
B3. Los Santos                         

Based on: Los Angeles, CA
Population: Unknown.
Comments: Nicknamed the "City of Saints"
 
Los Santos is a city located in the southeast region of the San Andreas 
state.  Situated close to the Mexican border, immigration and low 
income families are a huge problem for the city.  There are several 
poor neighbourhoods located in Los Santos.  The city suffers from 
pollution problems as well, thanks to the industrial sector in the 
southeast corner of the city.  The wind off the ocean pushes the 
pollution over the city.  The early 1990's saw the huge introduction of 
drugs into Los Santos.  Some of the local gangs sold the drugs and 
profited from it while others stayed away from the issue.  These gangs 
suffered as some members betrayed them and the drugs basically took 
over the city.

Gangs are a huge problem for Los Santos.  Each gang has their own 
territory located around their homes or neighbourhoods.  Gang wars are 
sparked very easily between similar ethnic groups or rival gangs.  
Simple insults or accidentally walking into a gang's territory can be 
the spark for gang wars.  The early 1990's were filled with gang wars 
and drug problems for the city.  Corrupt police officers rule the town 
and align themselves with gangs to promote their own agenda.

----------------------------------------------------------- 
B4. San Fierro                         
 
Based on: San Francisco, CA
Population: Unknown.
Comments: Least problematic city in the GTA universe.
 
San Fierro is located in the northwest region of the San Andreas state.  
San Fierro has a very polished look to it.  The streets are clean and 
the city has no industrial sector so pollution isn't a problem.  There 
are no low income or "poor" areas of the city possibly due to high 
housing costs.  San Fierro is a prime business city with hotels, car 
dealerships, and clubs being prime businesses.  San Fierro has a large 
Chinese and Vietnamese population in it.  These 2 ethnic groups 
conflict with each other but not very often.  Chinatown is a hot spot 
for tourists along with the docks.  San Fierro's airport is located to 
the southeast of the city near the US Naval Base.

San Fierro has several gangs but most of them aren't very violent.  
They stick to their own businesses and fronts.  The Chinese gangs would 
be the only large gang in the city with the Rifa (a Hispanic gang) 
following.  Some of the gangs have profited off the drug problems in 
Los Santos.  They produce the drugs in factories in San Fierro and then 
send them off to Los Santos to be sold at a mark-up.  Chinese and 
Vietnamese gangs had several conflicts in the early 1990's but it 
quickly ended with the disappearance of the Vietnamese gangs.

-----------------------------------------------------------
B5. Las Venturas                         

Based on: Las Vegas, NV
Population: Unknown.
Comments: City based around gambling. 
 
Las Venturas is located in the northeast region of the San Andreas 
state.  Smack dab in the middle of a huge desert, Las Venturas glows 
with neon lights in the night.  The city is powered by a huge 
hydroelectric dam located in the west called Sherman Dam.  Tourist 
gambling and spending is a primary source of revenue for the city.  
Several quiet suburb areas surround the central district called 'The 
Strip' which consists of restaurants, bars, casinos, hotels, and other 
businesses.  A main highway has been built which circles the city and 
helps ease the flow of traffic around the main tourist areas.

In the early 1990's the town was owned by the mafia.  The casino 
business was firmly in their grasp.  However, Chinese Triad gangs moved 
in and develop their own casinos in competition with the mafia.  Gang 
issues arose but settled shortly after.  The mafia's hold on the city 
was eventually weakened and the city has become simply a business 
community with minimal gang influence.

C. GANGS                              
 
What would be a Grand Theft Auto game without gangs?  Gangs are what 
drive the personalities and motivations of the individuals met 
throughout the GTA universe.  There is no one type of gang in GTA.  The 
groups are very diverse and even the same gang can be totally different 
depending on the time period and location.  Motivations change during 
the years.  Gangs are armed differently, have different goals, and use 
different fronts for their business.  This section will list and 
explain each gang or group that is worthy of such a description.  
Worthiness is based on what influence they have in their city or their 
importance to the storyline. 
 
-----------------------------------------------------------
C1. Ballas
 
City: Los Santos
Turf: Idlewood, Glen Park
Leader: Unknown
Clothes/ colours: Any purple clothing.  Hoody, pants, bandanas, etc... 
Vehicles: Unknown 
Activity: Robbery, drug dealing. 

The Ballas were originally formed somewhere in the 1980's.  It is 
unknown who started the group or where in Los Santos it originated.  
Some theories suggest they they started in or around Idlewood or Glen 
Park as those are typically low income, African-American 
neighbourhoods.  This puts them close to the Grove Street Families 
which could also point to the hatred between the gangs.  The gang is 
the most hated enemy of the Grove Street Families.  Due to fighting 
among the Grove Street Families and the introduction of drugs the Grove 
Street Families lost much of its former glory.  The Ballas were able to 
take over most of the Grove's territory during this time in the early 
1990's.  In 1992, Carl Johnson returned to Los Santos and began helping 
the Grove Street Families regain territory and influence.  The Ballas 
may have been caught off guard as CJ was able to unite the families 
quickly.  However, due to the defection of Big Smoke and Ryder to the 
Ballas and the murder of several top members, the Grove Street Families 
were almost wiped out.  The drugs the Ballas sold were a strong reason 
for this defection.  Later that year, the Grove Street Families 
returned and were eventually able to wipe out most of the Ballas gang.  
At present it is unknown whether the Ballas were completely taken out 
or not.

Storyline: The Ballas started gaining strong influence around 1987 when 
the Grove Street Families lost one of its leaders.  Carl Johnson left 
Los Santos after a mistake that got his brother, Brian, killed.  The 
Ballas began using drugs to expand their influence and control in Los 
Santos.  During this time they seemed to have allied with the Vagos and 
had a drug syndicate set up with the Rifa from San Fierro.  In 1992, 
the Johnson's mother was killed and Carl returned.  Carl set out to 
bring the gang back to life.  He managed to get it going but found 
drugs had a big influence over the former members.  The Ballas has 
taken control of much of the city.  However, CJ started to succeed and 
had several key victories over the Ballas.  This was until the Grove 
Street Families were betrayed by Big Smoke and Ryder who defected to 
the Ballas.  Several high ranking members of the Grove Street were 
killed in the incident.  The Ballas re-established themselves at the 
top of Los Santos again.  However, CJ destroyed the Rifa drug factory 
in San Fierro so the supply to Los Santos would end.  CJ then killed 
Ryder and broke up the drug syndicate and returned to Los Santos.  He 
brought together the Grove Street Families again and took on the 
Ballas.  CJ and the Grove Street Families were able to kill Big Smoke, 
Officer Tenpenny, and numerous Ballas members.  Continuing on they took 
over Ballas' territory.  It is unknown if the Ballas survived and if 
the gang is still around or not. 

----------------------------------------------------------- 
C2. Bikers 
 
City: Vice City
Turf: Small area near Greasy Choppers Bar
Leader: Big Mitch Baker
Clothes/ colours: Leather jackets and vest, blue jeans, bandanas 
Vehicles: Harley style Motorcycles 
Activity: Security services

The Bikers consist of several war veterans and motorcycle fanatics.  
They act as a family and are very close to one another.  Joining the 
gang is difficult and not taken lightly among the members.  One most 
prove that they are worthy and they usually have to win a race against 
other bikers and perform several tasks to prove they are worthy to be 
accepted.  Once you are in the group, they will treat you as a member 
of the family.

Storyline: Kent Paul decides that he needs security for a Love Fist 
concert.  He asks Tommy Vercetti to go get the Bikers as the security.  
Tommy must first become a member of the gang before they will do the 
security.  So Tommy performs several tasks for the gang including 
getting back Big Mitch's bike back after it was stolen.  Eventually, 
Tommy is accepted into the gang and Big Mitch agrees to provide 
security for the concert. 
 
----------------------------------------------------------- 
C3. Blood Feather Triads 
 
City: San Fierro
Turf: Chinatown
Leader: Unknown
Clothes/ colours: Black suits, traditional red and white Chinese 
clothing. 
Vehicles: Unknown 
Activity: Possibly involved in gambling
 
The Blood Feathers were a section of the Chinese Triad group in San 
Fierro.  Little is known about them as the gang was completely wiped 
out by the Da Nang Boys, a Vietnamese gang who moved to San Fierro in 
the early 1990's.  The Blood Feather Triads appeared to have been 
targeted first by the Da Nang Boys as they were the weakest group of 
the Triads.  It didn't appear that the Blood Feathers had much control 
or influence over the Triad operations or in the city of San Fierro.

Storyline: CJ and Woozie go to the Blood Feathers in an attempt to 
strengthen their alliance in order to stop the Da Nang Boys.  CJ and 
Woozie were too late as the Da Nang Boys had already killed all the 
Blood Feathers.  They attacked CJ and Wooize but they managed to 
escape.  This action by the Da Nang Boys starts agang wars between the 
Triads and themselves. 

-----------------------------------------------------------
C4. Columbian Cartel                       

City: Liberty City
Turf: Cedar Grove, Construction Site (Port Staunton)
Leader: Currently unknown, 1998 - Miguel, 2000 - Cisco, 2001 - Catalina 
and Miguel
Clothes/ colours: Navy blue pants, Hawaiian shirts 
Vehicles: Cartel Cruiser 
Activity: Drug distribution
 
In 1998, the Cartel was lead by Miguel (who leads in GTA III) and 
seemed to be just starting out in Liberty City.  They were heavy into 
the drug business and that was their main front.  In 2000, the 
Columbian Cartel was lead by Cisco.  It is unknown why or how Miguel 
fell from leader of the Cartel during this time.  They were primarily 
involved in the drugs industry under Cisco's leadership as well.  A man 
by the name of Mike started working for the Cartel during the same 
year.  Mike began working with the Cartel after he had killed and beat 
up several of the Cartel's high officials.  Cisco, not knowing of the 
murders, hired Mike for his brutality.  The Cartel started some bad 
blood with the Yakuza by kidnapping the Yakuza leader's niece.  She was 
eventually broken out by Mike.  Cisco is eventually killed by a man 
that Mike thought was dead.  In 2001, Catalina and Miguel took over the 
Cartel.  They used the Cartel to sell their new drug, SPANK, to Liberty 
City.  Catalina, however, was still obsessed with ending Claude's life 
and eventually Claude killed her and several high ranking members in 
the Cartel.  It is unknown what happened to the Cartel after that.

Storyline: In 1998, the Cartel wasn't big time just yet.  They were led 
by Miguel who would later lose his power to Cisco and then regain it 
thanks to Catalina.  They were already into the drug business.  In 
2000, Cisco hired Mike for the Cartel and Mike would work with them 
until he started to work for the Yakuza.  Mike then went back to the 
Cartel when Cisco said that he had information about Mike's friend's 
(Vinnie) killer.  Cisco was then murdered by Vinnie himself.  In 2001, 
Catalina and Miguel took over the Cartel.  They used the Cartel to 
distribute their new drug, SPANK.  Catalina also used the Cartel to 
attempt to kill Claude but they were unsuccessful.  Miguel was captured 
by Claude and Asuka.  Miguel gave valuable information to Asuka as a 
result of her torture.  Catalina returned to where Miguel was captured.  
She killed Miguel and Asuka and kidnapped Claude's girlfriend, Maria.  
Claude followed them and managed to kill Catalina as well as numerous 
Cartel members.  It is unknown what happened after this in the Cartel.

-----------------------------------------------------------
C5. Columbians (Vice City)

City: Vice City
Turf: Starfish Island, Diaz Mansion
Leader: Ricardo Diaz
Clothes/ colours: Hawaiian shirts and dark pants. 
Vehicles: Unknown 
Activity: Protection, drug dealing 
 
In the mid 1980's the Vice City Columbians became extremely powerful 
and held a great deal of influence over Vice City.  They ruled the 
city.  The leader, Ricardo Diaz, had only been in the country for a few 
years and had a reputation of being a hot head.  He would do anything 
and kill anyone to further the Columbians business.  The Columbians 
were high into importing and selling of drugs.  In 1986, however, the 
Columbian gang interfered in a drug deal between the Vance brothers and 
Tommy Vercetti.  Tommy eventually killed most of the Columbians 
including the leader, Ricardo Diaz.  It is unknown if the gang 
regrouped or ceased to exist in the following years.

Storyline: Ricardo Diaz had learned of Tommy Vercetti's drug deal and 
sent a team to ambush it.  They succeeded.  Tommy and Lance set out to 
find who did this.  Tommy eventually started to work for Diaz and 
discovered that it was Diaz that broke up their deal.  Tommy planned 
Diaz' downfall but Lance jumped the gun and attacked Diaz.  He was 
captured.  Tommy broke him out and they stormed the Diaz mansion.  They 
killed all of Diaz' men in the mansion and then killed Diaz himself.  
It is unknown if some of Diaz' gang survived and restarted or it ended 
there.

----------------------------------------------------------- 
C6. Cubans

City: Vice City
Turf: Little Havana
Leader: Umberto Robina
Clothes/ colours: Red bandanas, white shirts, blue pants. 
Vehicles: Cuban Hermes 
Activity: Drug dealing, smuggling

In the mid 1980's, Cuban refugees came to Vice City in increasing 
numbers as it was the closest American city to Cuba.  At some point the 
began a turf war with Haitian refugees in Vice City.  Little Haiti and 
Little Havana are located right next to each other and the pursuit of 
new territory may have been a cause.  The war was very back and forth 
with neither side getting the upper hand.  However, the Cubans 
eventually crippled their Haitian rivals when several Cubans destroyed 
a Haitian factory.  It is unknown what the Cubans gang did after this.

Storyline: In 1986, the Cubans were in a turf war with the Haitians.  
The Haitians tried to break up a deal the Cubans were making with 
Ricardo Diaz and the Columbians but Tommy Vercetti stopped them.  
Umberto Robina, the leader of the Cubans, hired Tommy after he had 
killed a man that did some jobs for Umberto.  Tommy first had to prove 
himself to Umberto and did.  Tommy then helped the Cubans steal some 
drugs from the Haitians and then destroy the Haitian factory.  It is 
unknown what happened after this.

C7. Da Nang Boys  
 
City: San Fierro
Turf: Easter Basin
Leader: Currently unknown, 1992 - Snakehead
Clothes/ colours: Regular street clothes. 
Vehicles: Unknown 
Activity: Shipping, importing of illegal immigrants 
 
The Da Nang Boys are a Vietnamese gang that moved to San Fierro in the 
early 1990's.  During the move they managed the kill the Blood Feather 
Triads in an attempt to make their mark and seize territory.  However, 
they were quickly killed off by the Mountain Cloud Boys in retaliation 
for this attack.  It is unknown if the remaining members returned to 
Vietnam to rejoin the rest of the gang.

Storyline: In 1992, the Da Nang Boys begin to attack the Triad gangs in 
San Fierro.  The Triads question why the Da Nang Boys have been on the 
offensive recently.  They find out that the entire group is relocating 
to San Fierro and looking to seize territory and make their mark.  
Woozie gets CJ to bug the tanker that the Da Nang Boys operate from to 
find this information.  They also find that the leader, Snakehead, is 
arriving in San Fierro and will be on the tanker.  CJ heads out to the 
tanker and kills all the Da Nang Boys on the boat including the 
Snakehead.

C8. Diablos                          
 
City: Liberty City
Turf: Hepburn Heights
Leader: El Burro
Clothes/ colours: Jeans, navy blue jackets, orange or navy blue hats. 
Vehicles: Diablo Stallion 
Activity: Car racing, burglary, small time activities.
 
The Diablos are a relatively small gang.  They pride themselves on 
being the top street racers of Liberty City.  This causes issues 
between themselves and the Yardies gang since they also are street 
racers.  The gangs are located on different islands in the city but 
still place hits and attacks on each other.  The Diablos only have 
small weapons such as handguns and bats.  Their other fronts include 
burglary and possibly some small time drug dealing.  The Diablos 
started making waves in 1998 on Portland Island.  By 2001, they 
controlled Hepburn Heights and the surrounding areas on Portland. 

Storyline: In 1998, the Diablos attacked the Leone Family in Hepburn 
Heights in order to gain control of the territory.  The Diablos weren't 
successful, thanks to Toni Cipriani, but after several more attacks 
they were and the Leone's Family lost Hepburn Heights, possibly 
forever.  In 2001, Claude gets a call from El Burro, the Diablo leader.  
He wants Claude to work for him but he must prove himself first in a 
race.  Claude wins this race and shortly after he performs some minimal 
jobs for El Burro before he ceases doing business with them.  Later, 
Claude goes to work for the Yardies and in a job for them guns down 
numerous Diablos members.  It is unknown what happened to them after 
that.  This severely hurt the group and it is unknown if anyone 
capitalized on this afterwards.

C9. Forelli Family                         
 
City: Liberty City
Turf: St. Mark's Bistro
Leader: 1986 - Sonny Forelli, Franco Forelli by 1998
Clothes/ colours: Black suits, mafia style 
Vehicles: Sentinel 
Activity: Arms dealing, drug trafficking, protection, loan sharking. 
 
The Forelli Family is a gang that's power has fluctuated over the 
years.  In the mid 1980's, they had strong influence over much of 
Liberty City.  Attempts at expanding to Vice City would fail and would 
cause numerous Forrelli Family members deaths.  In 1992, they joined 
with the Leone and Sindacco Families to fund a casino in Las Venturas.  
That venture would also fail as the Leone's took over control and the 
casino would eventually be robbed and the Sindacco's would take over 
from there.  In 1998, they were losing influence and numbers in Liberty 
City.  The Leone Family killed off several more members in turf wars 
involving all three families and the Sicillians.  By 2001, the Forelli 
Family had very little influence in Liberty City and most were killed 
by the Leone Family.

Storyline: In 1986, Sonny Forelli was the head of the Forelli Family.  
He sent Tommy Vercetti down to Vice City to get things rolling down 
there with a drug deal.  The drug deal was ambushed and the money was 
lost.  Tommy promised he would get Sonny's money back but Tommy began 
forming his own criminal empire in Vice City as he investigated.  The 
Forelli attempt to take it over failed and Sonny along with several 
Forelli Family members were killed.  In 1992, the Forelli Family had a 
part in Caligula's Casino in Las Venturas.  But the Leone Family took 
over the casino, which would eventually be robbed by Carl Johnson.  By 
1998, the Forelli Family had minimal power in Liberty City.  They were 
caught in a war with the Sindacco and the Leone Families thanks to a 
group of Sicillians.  The Leone Family, mainly Toni Cipriani, killed 
several Forelli Family members in this conflict.  By 2001, the Forelli 
Family had lost a lot of influence in Liberty City.  Joey Leone started 
up some bad blood with them but Claude, working for the Leone Family at 
the time, took care of most of the Forelli men that opposed him.  It is 
unknown at this time what has become of the Forelli's.

C10. Golfers                 
 
City: Vice City
Turf: Leaf Links Golf Course
Leader: Unknown
Clothes/ colours: Regular golfing clothing. 
Vehicles: Caddy 
Activity: Playing golf

The golfers are a group in Vice City that are centered around the Leaf 
Links Golf Course.  They consist of elderly men and women, probably 
retired, in golfing attire.  They aren't particularly violent or well 
armed.  However, they will attack with golf clubs and even 9mm pistols 
if provoked or assaulted.  They will only resort to violence if you 
attack them first or disrupt their golf game.  

Storyline: Tommy Vercetti encounters this group only a few times while 
taking over Vice City in 1986.  They aren't too hostile but on a few 
occasions attack him.  One particular incident happened after Tommy 
Vercetti killed a man and several of his guards on the driving range in 
the golf course area.  Several nearby golfers attacked Tommy but he 
managed to escape them.
 
----------------------------------------------------------- 
C11. Grove Street Families                 
 
City: Los Santos
Turf: Grove Street
Leader: Carl Johnson (CJ), Sean Johnson (Sweet)
Clothes/ colours: Any green clothing.  Shirts, pants, bandanas, etc... 
Vehicles: Unknown 
Activity: Robbery, land/ property acquisition

The Grove Street Families were originally formed somewhere in the 
1980's.  The Johnson brothers, Sean and Carl, along with Big Smoke and 
Ryder lead the group.  Due to fighting among the family, rival gangs, 
and drugs the Grove Street Family lost much of its former glory by the 
early 1990's.  In 1992, Carl returned to Los Santos and began helping 
the Grove Street Families regain territory and influence.  However, due 
to the defection of Big Smoke and Ryder and the murder of several top 
members, the Grove Street Family was almost wiped out.  Later that 
year, the Grove Street Family returned and was eventually able to wipe 
out most of the other gangs in Los Santos.  They allied themselves with 
the Varrios Los Aztecas.  At present it is unknown whether the family 
is still in control.

Storyline: The downfall of the gang started around 1987 when a mistake 
by Carl allowed the youngest brother in the family, Brian, to be 
killed.  Carl left Los Santos and went to Liberty City.  In 1992, the 
Johnson's mother was killed and Carl returned.  Upon his return he was 
framed for a cop's murder and found his former gang to have fallen and 
have split.  Carl set out to bring the gang back to life.  He managed 
to get it going but found drugs had a big influence over the former 
members.  Carl looked to be succeeding until the Grove Street Family 
was betrayed by Big Smoke and Ryder.  Several high ranking members were 
killed in the incident and Sweet was placed in jail.  Carl was forced 
out of Los Santos.  While Carl went around other cities and towns in 
San Andreas he was able to acquire a garage, an airstrip, and become a 
partial owner of a casino.  During this time he killed Ryder and a 
number of individuals that he thought were involved in the drug 
operation that cost him his family and gang.  He returned to Los Santos 
with new allies and was able to take back his neighbourhood.  Sweet was 
released from jail.  Carl and Sweet got the Grove Street Family 
together again and they eventually killed Big Smoke and most of the 
rival gang, the Ballas.  It is unknown whether the family was able to 
maintain their influence in the following years.

-----------------------------------------------------------
C12. Haitians

City: Vice City
Turf: Little Haiti
Leader: Auntie Poulet
Clothes/ colours: Purple bandanas and shirts, blue pants. 
Vehicles: Voodoo 
Activity: Drug dealing, smuggling 

In the mid 1980's, Haitian refugees came to Vice City in increasing 
numbers as it was one of the closest American cities to Haiti.  At some 
point they began a turf war with Cuban refugees in Vice City.  The war 
was very back and forth with no one getting the upper hand.  The 
Haitians were able to win several key fights between the gangs.  
However, the Cubans eventually crippled the Haitians when several 
Cubans destroyed a Haitian factory.  It is unknown what happened to the 
Haitian gang after this. 

Storyline: In 1986, the Haitians were involved in a turf war with the 
Cubans in Vice City.  The Cubans were aided by Tommy Vercetti in 
several missions.  However, Auntie Poulet used some special potions and 
brainwashing to get Tommy to perform a few tasks for the Haitians.  He 
helped them in several fights between the Cubans and Haitians.  
However, Tommy went back to work for the Cubans and blew up the Haitian 
factory which may have crippled the Haitian gang.  It is unknown what 
happened after this.

Comments: A lot of the dialogue for GTA Vice City referencing the 
killing of Haitians had to be removed or edited.  This was thanks to 
the Haitian community in an uproar about the negative treatment of 
their culture/ group.  But apparently it is ok to reference to kill 
Italians, Cubans (although the Cubans also had problems with this), 
Columbians, French, etc...  It's a game people, get over it. 

----------------------------------------------------------- 
C13. Leone Family                             
 
City: Liberty City
Turf: Saint Mark's
Leader: Currently Joey Leone or Toni Cipriani, formerly Salvatore Leone
Clothes/ colours: Black suits, sunglasses, mafia style 
Vehicles: Mafia Sentinel 
Activity: Protection, gambling, prostitution, drug trafficking

Little is known about the Leone Family before 1992.  Salvatore Leone 
became the leader some time in the 1980's after a huge power struggle 
in the family.  In 1992, they were a third owner of a casino in Las 
Venturas called Caligula's Casino.  This was thanks to Salvatore 
lending the Sindacco Family $5 million as an investment for the casino.  
This was when the Leone Family made their move.  They took over the 
casino and were able to basically wipe out the Sindacco Family.  The 
Forelli Family sent men after the Leone's but they were killed as well.  
However, the casino was later robbed and it is assumed that the Leone's 
pulled out of the casino after that incident.  The Sindacco's took it 
over again afterwards.  In 1998, the Leone's made further pushes in 
Liberty City when Toni Cipriani returned to the family.  They killed 
several Sindacco and Forelli Family members during this time in a turf 
war conflict.  They also lost a lot of territory to the Diablos, 
Triads, and Yakuza.  By 2001, the Leone's were in gang wars with the 
Yakuza, Cartel, and Forelli's.  This put a severe strain on their 
resources.  The biggest blow came in 2001 when Salvatore Leone was 
murdered by former employee, Claude.  It is unknown who took over the 
Leone Family after this.  Whether it be Joey Leone, Salvatore's son, or 
Toni Cipriani, Salvatore's right hand man.

Storyline: In 1992, the Leone Family took control of Caligula's Casino 
from the Sindacco and Forelli Families.  Retaliation was met with by 
Carl Johnson who was working for the Leone's at the time.  What 
Salvatore Leone didn't know is that Carl was planning a heist on the 
casino and using his access to the casino as a way of gathering 
information.  Carl eventually robbed the casino and it is assumed that 
the Leone's pulled out of the casino.  In 1998, Toni Cipriani returned 
to Liberty City and the Leone Family after performing a hit on a made 
man in the city in 1994.  Toni helped Salvatore expand the Leone's 
influence by first killing the mayor of Liberty City.  They would also 
end the Sindacco Family in Liberty City and kill most of the Forelli 
Family members.  However, they lost a lot of territory to the Diablos, 
Triads, and Yakuza during that time.  Toni would eventually become 
Salvatore's right hand man.  By 2001, the Leone's had lost some 
influence in the city but recruited Claude to do work for them.  With 
his help they were able to eliminate the Triad threat and destroy a 
huge tanker owned by the Columbian Cartel.  Salvatore soon began to 
believe that Claude had betrayed him.  Salvatore almost had Claude 
killed but Maria, Salvatore's former lover, saved Claude.  Claude had 
to prove to the Yakuza that he was no longer allied with the Leone's 
and, therefore, killed Salvatore.  It is unknown who took over the 
Leone Family after this point.

----------------------------------------------------------- 
C14. Mountain Cloud Boys (Triads)                  
 
City: San Fierro, Las Venturas
Turf: Chinatown (SF), Four Dragons Casino (LV)
Leader: Wu Zi Mu
Clothes/ colours: Black suits
Vehicles: Unknown 
Activity: Casino operating, street racing.

In the early 1990's the Mountain Cloud Boys attempted to bring together 
the Triad groups to unite against a Vietnamese group known as the Da 
Nang Boys. Located in San Fierro, the Da Nang Boys choose the Triad 
territory as their new territory.  The Da Nang Boys killed the entire 
Blood Feather Triads before the Mountain Cloud Boys could ally with 
them.  As retaliation, the Mountain Cloud Boys and Carl Johnson managed 
to kill several Da Nang Boys members in the following attack.  The Da 
Nang Boys were becoming increasingly aggressive because the group was 
making a full move to San Fierro from China.  The Mountain Cloud Boys 
lead an attack on the Da Nang Boys' tanker out in the bay to the north 
of San Fierro.  Killing all the Da Nang Boys within including their 
leader, Snakehead, the Mountain Cloud Boys had ended the threat.  They 
soon moved primary operations to Las Venturas in the Four Dragons 
Casino.  Facing pressures from the Mafia the Mountain Cloud Boys, along 
with Carl Johnson, were able to rob the Mafia's casino and end their 
threat.  It is unknown what their operations after this time were.  The 
Mountain Cloud Boys would become strong allies of the Grove Street 
Families. 
 
Storyline: CJ first meets Wu Zi Mu (Woozie for short) out near Red 
County.  They race and CJ ends up winning.  CJ eventually moves to San 
Fierro after winning a garage.  CJ and Woozie team up and face off with 
the Da Nang Boys after they killed the Blood Feather Triads.  CJ then 
swims out to the Da Nag Boys tanker and planted a bug on their 
communication devices.  Listening in, they found that the entire Da 
Nang Boys gang is moving to San Fierro.  In an attempt to stop them, CJ 
heads out to the tanker and kills the entire gang, frees some refugees, 
and kills the Da Nang Boys leader, Snakehead.  Afterwards, the Mountain 
Cloud Boys move their main operations to Las Venturas and open a casino 
called the Four Dragons.  They run into problems when the Mafia give 
them a hard time.  CJ performs several tasks to get the Mafia off the 
Mountain Cloud Boys back.  Eventually, CJ and Woozie set up a heist and 
steal from the Mafia casino.

C15. Purple Nines                      

City: Liberty City
Turf: Wichita Gardens
Leader: Unknown
Clothes/ colours: Jeans, purple jackets.
Vehicles: Hoods Rumpo XL 
Activity: Burglary, robbery, drug dealing.
 
In 2000 or 2001, the Purple Nines started up as a small gang in Wichita 
Gardens in Liberty City.  They mainly dealt with drug dealing of the 
new drug called SPANK supplied by the Cartel and the Yardies.  The 
Purple Nines were also into burglary and small time robbery.  
Unfortunately, their turf was originally and currently the turf of the 
Red Jacks.  This started a turf war between the two gangs.  The Red 
Jacks were eventually able to wipe out the Purple Nines and end their 
short history.

Storyline: The Purple Nines started up in 2000 or 2001.  They quickly 
tried to take over the territory of the Red Jacks.  The Purple Nines 
main front was the sale of SPANK.  The Red Jacks decided to enlist the 
help of Claude in 2001 to deal with the Purple Nines problem.  They 
first got him to kill any Purple Nine he saw on the street which 
quickly decreased their numbers.  Afterwards, there wasn't much left 
for the gang so they decided to have one final battle with the Red 
Jacks and Claude.  Claude and a member of the Red Jacks took on the 
remaining members of the Purple Nines and were able to finish them off 
for good.

----------------------------------------------------------- 
C16. Red Gecko Tong (Triads)                  
 
City: San Fierro, Las Venturas
Turf: Chinatown (SF), Four Dragons Casino (LV)
Leader: Ran Fa Li
Clothes/ colours: Black suits
Vehicles: Unknown 
Activity: Gambling

The Red Gecko Tong's are lead by Ran Fa Li.  They are a section of the 
Triads in San Fierro.  In the early 1990's, one of the sects, the Blood 
Feather Triads, were killed by a Vietnamese gang known as the Da Nang 
Boys.  Ran Fa Li and Wu Zi Mu, leader of the Mountain Cloud Boys, come 
together to form a union in the Triad gang to fight the Vietnamese 
gangs.  They were successful in destroying the Da Nang Boys thanks to 
the help of Carl Johnson.  Later on, Ran Fa Li became a partial owner 
of the Four Dragons Casino in Las Venturas with the Mountain Cloud Boys 
and the Grove Street Families. 
 
Storyline: CJ first meets Ran Fa Li when he is introduced by Wu Zi Mu.  
CJ recovers some packages for Ran Fa Li and helps him to leave the 
Mountain Cloud Boys betting shop safely by creating a diversion.  CJ 
also ends up killing off the entire Da Nang Boys gang.  Later on, Ran 
Fa Li becomes a partial owner of the Four Dragons Casino in Las 
Venturas with CJ and Wu Zi Mu.  Ran Fa Li, apparently, is ranked higher 
than Wu Zi Mu in the Triad organization.
 
----------------------------------------------------------- 
C17. Red Jacks                         

City: Liberty City
Turf: Wichita Gardens
Leader: D-Ice
Clothes/ colours: Jeans, red jackets.
Vehicles: Hoods Rumpo XL 
Activity: Burglary, robbery, drug dealing. 
 
In 2000, the Red Jacks were ruling the neighbourhood of Wichita Gardens 
in Liberty City.  Then in 2000 or 2001 the Purple Nines arrived on the 
scene and staked their claim on the Wichita Gardens area.  The Red 
Jacks and Purple Nines immediately erupted into a gang war for control 
of the area.  The groups had very similar fronts and activities so the 
gang war wasn't just based on territory.  Both distributed drugs on the 
streets so the other gang's activities would cost them profit.  In 
2001, the Red Jacks decided to end the Purple Nines' threat.  A series 
of shoot outs and fist fights broke out and the Red Jacks killed off 
the Purple Nines gang entirely.

Storyline: In 2001, D-Ice, the leader of the Red Jacks, enlisted the 
help of Claude to eliminate the Purple Nines forever.  He first went 
out to the streets and killed every Purple Nines he saw.  This 
decimated the Purple Nines numbers and they decided to make one final 
stand against the Red Jacks.  Claude and a Red Jack member (D-Ice's 
brother) fought with the remaining members of the Purple Nines and won.  
This ended the Purple Nines and established the Red Jacks as the top 
gang (only gang) in Wichita Gardens.
 
----------------------------------------------------------- 
C18. San Fierro Rifa                      

City: San Fierro
Turf: Doherty
Leader: T-Bone Mendez
Clothes/ colours: Any turquoise clothing.  Wife-beaters, pants, 
bandanas, etc... 
Vehicles: Unknown 
Activity: Robbery, drug dealing, drug production. 
 
Sometime before 1992, the Rifa and the Ballas (Los Santos) allied 
themselves in a business deal.  This was in large part thanks to the 
Loco Syndicate that the Rifa leader, T-Bone Mendez, was a part of.  The 
Rifa would manufacture drugs in San Fierro and then send them to Los 
Santos for the Ballas to sell on the streets.  Both groups profited 
from this and it was the main form of income for the gangs.  However, 
in 1992 the factory was destroyed and T-Bone Mendez was killed.  It is 
unknown what happened to the gang after that.

Storyline: It isn't known when the Rifa gang was formed. They primarily 
manufactured and sold drugs to the Ballas gang in Los Santos.  They are 
lead by T-Bone Mendez.  In 1992, the Ballas destroyed the Grove Street 
Families, their biggest rivals.  One of the leaders, Carl Johnson, took 
his revenge on the Ballas and destroyed the Rifa's drug plant so the 
Ballas could no longer get their supply of drugs.  CJ also killed T-
Bone Mendez.  It is unknown what happened to the Rifa after this 
incident.

----------------------------------------------------------- 
C19. Security Guards 

City: Vice City
Turf: Starfish Island, North Point Mall, Leaf Links, Escobar 
International Airport
Leader: Company - Patrol Invest Group (P.I.G.)
Clothes/ colours: Dark blue officer uniforms 
Vehicles: Baggage Handler (airport only) 
Activity: Protection, smuggling.

Security guards are hired by certain companies for protection and 
security purposes.  The main company is called Patrol Invest Group.  In 
the mid 1980's they were in high demand in Vice City because of the 
huge increase in criminal and drug activities.  They will usually 
shoot, before asking questions, at anyone they feel is up to no good.  
These security guards are often chased by police officers.  This is 
because the police don't see them as a legitimate security company and 
because they random shoot at anyone.  It is believed that the group 
uses Escobar International Airport for smuggling activities.

Storyline: Tommy Vercetti encounters these guards several times in Vice 
City in 1986.  They are involved in numerous conflicts mainly around 
the North Point Mall.  This is the turf of the Streetwannabe's so the 
conflict of the two groups is sparked easily.  The security guards are 
often chased by cops for their "shot first, asked questions later" 
attitudes.  It is believed that the Security Guards use Escobar 
International Airport for smuggling activities.
 
----------------------------------------------------------- 
C20. Sindacco Family                        

City: Liberty City, Las Venturas
Turf: Portland (LC), Caligula's Casino (LV)
Leader: 1992 - Johnny Sindacco, 1998 - Paulie Sindacco
Clothes/ colours: Suits, sunglasses, mafia style 
Vehicles: Sindacco Argento (LC) (Thanks to Dan Justice for this one) 
Activity: Protection, gambling, prostitution, drug dealing. 
 
In the early 1990's, the Sindaccos were one of three Liberty City mafia 
families that owned shares of Caligula's Casino in Las Venturas.  They 
were able to fund this after a loan of $5 million from the Leone's.  
Out of the 3 mafia families the Sindacco's were that ones that seem 
most interested in Las Venturas as a business opportunity.  They 
maintained a warehouse in Las Venturas where they manufactured fake 
betting chips to distribute at rival casinos to disrupt their business.  
They also owned a meat factory.  However, the Sindacco's time ran out 
in 1992 when management at the Four Dragons Casino killed almost every 
member of the Sindacco Family in their meat factory in Las Venturas.  
In 1998, the Sindacco's had become a shell of their former selves.  
They would be caught in turf wars with the Leone's and the Forelli's 
and the Leone's would eventually finish off the Sindacco Family for 
good in Liberty City.  It is believed that the Sindacco's then left 
Liberty City to operate full time in Las Venturas at the casino.

Storyline: In 1992, Johnny Sindacco led the Sindacco Family.  He was 
captured by Woozie and CJ drove him around town tied to the front of 
the car to get information out of him.  Based on this, CJ was able to 
destroy the Sindacco plastic warehouse and stop their fake chip 
production.  Johnny was released from hospital after the trauma he 
suffered from CJ.  CJ went to meet Johnny and the Sindacco's as a 
favour to Ken Rosenburg.  When Johnny recognized CJ he died of a heart 
attack.  CJ proceeded to kill all the Sindacco Family members in the 
factory and, basically, destroyed the family.  By 1998 they had very 
little influence in Liberty City but were operatign the casino in Las 
Venturas still and profiting.  The Sindacco's got in a turf war with 
the Forelli's and the Leone's.  Toni Cipriani managed to finish off the 
Sindaccos for good in Liberty City.  It is believe that they decided to 
focus on the casino in Las Venturas after this.

----------------------------------------------------------- 
C21. Streetwannabe's 

City: Vice City
Turf: North Point Mall, Prawn Island
Leader: Unknown
Clothes/ colours: Blue jeans and vest, red shirts. 
Vehicles: Gang Burrito 
Activity: Theft, arms dealing.

The Streetwannabe's are a small gang of wannabe thugs in Vice City.  In 
the 1980's they took part in several minor acts against other gangs in 
Vice City to increase their reputation but were usually dealt with 
quickly.  They mostly deal with theft of drugs or weapons and then 
resell them on the streets for profit.  The Streetwannabe's focus 
mainly around the North Point Mall in Vice City and can often be seen 
in conflicts with the local security guards.

Storyline: Tommy Vercetti deals with the Streetwannabe's several times 
during his rise in Vice City in 1986.  Ricardo Diaz finds that one of 
them stole his shipment of drugs and assigns Tommy to follow him.  
Tommy finds the man head into an abandoned house on Prawn Island.  
Tommy returns in a helicopter and slaughters most of the members there.  
He then travels on foot and recovers Diaz' drugs.  Later, the 
Streetwannabe's steal Big Mitch Baker's bike and Tommy Vercetti 
recovers it from the group and kills a lot of the members involved.

-----------------------------------------------------------
C22. The Triads (Liberty City)                      

City: Liberty City
Turf: Chinatown
Leader: Unknown
Clothes/ colours: Blue uniforms (like a mechanic's clothes) 
Vehicles: Fish Van 
Activity: Produce distribution (fish), protection.
 
The Triads of Liberty City were never an organized group or held much 
power until 1998.  At that time, they sabotaged a Leone Family complex 
and destroyed it.  This site would later become a Fish Factory for the 
Triads.  During the following years the Triads gained more and more 
influence on Portland Island.  They were never major but had a good 
front and numerous members.  In 2001, the Triads started a war with the 
Leone Family again by attacking some high ranking members.  With the 
help of Claude, the Leone's were able to kill several high ranking 
members of the Triads and destroy the Triad Fish Factory.  The Triad 
influence seemed to drop after that and it is unknown what happened 
with the group afterwards.

Storyline: The Triads weren't much until they destroyed a Leone Family 
facility in 1998.  Toni Cipriani was in the building and managed to 
survive the explosion and the following swarm of Triad members.  This 
could be the cause for his strong hatred of the Triads by 2001.  The 
Triads rebuilt the building as their Fish Factory, a legitimate front 
for the group.  Subsequent attacks on the Leone Family allowed them to 
gain more territory.  In 2001, the Triads started a gang war with the 
Leone's by first attacking Toni Cipriani.  He instructed Claude to take 
out several Triad leaders and destroy their Fish Factory in Portland.  
Claude accomplished this and ended the threat from the Triads.  It is

In the early 1990's (or late 1980's) the Vagos allied themselves with 
the Ballas in a drug distribution empire lead by Officer Tenpenny of 
the LSPD's special CRASH dept.  In 1992, the Ballas wiped out the Grove 
Street Families the Vagos were able to wipe out the Varrios Los 
Aztecas, the rival Hispanic gang.  Taking over their territory, the 
Vagos enjoyed a time of dominance along with the Ballas.  However, the 
Grove Street Families and the Varrios Los Aztecas returned and killed 
numerous Vagos.  They would eventually lose most or all of their 
territory and it is unknown what happened to them afterwards.

Storyline: In 1992, the Ballas wiped out the Grove Street Families the 
Vagos had several Varrios Los Aztecas members defect to them due to 
drugs.  The Vagos killed most of the remaining Varrios Los Aztecas 
members and took over their territory.  They enjoyed this time as 
allies of the Ballas and the Loco Syndicate.  Eventually, Cesar (former 
leader of the Varrios Los Aztecas) returned and with the help of CJ and 
other Varrios Los Aztecas members they killed the Vagos.  It is unknown

In 1992, the Varrios Los Aztecas were in a turf war with the Vagos.  
The Vagos represented the Mexican gangs involved in drugs distribution.  
The Los Aztecas wanted nothing to do with drugs and focused primarily 
on car racing and modifying of cars.  However, the Vagos allied 
themselves with the Ballas and managed to kill most of the Varrios Los 
Aztecas members.  Several others turned on their friends and joined the 
Vagos as well because of the drugs.  Cesar Vialpando and several high 
ranking members fled Los Santos.  A while later they returned and 
allied with the Grove Street Families and managed to kill off most of 
the Vagos.  The Varrios Los Aztecas have a strong alliance with the 
Grove Street Families but it is unknown what happened after they killed 
the Vagos.

Storyline: In 1992, Cesar Vialpando led the Varrios Los Aztecas.  After 
the Ballas and the Vagos killed most of the Varrios Los Aztecas and 
Grove Street Families members, Cesar, CJ, Kendl, and other members of 
both gangs left Los Santos.  They set up base in a garage in San Fierro 
to figure out a strategy on getting back their territory in Los Santos.  
Eventually CJ and Cesar made it back into Los Santos.  CJ helped Cesar 
and several members of the Varrios Los Aztecas fight off and kill most 
of the Vagos gangs and reclaim their territory.  Cesar and CJ created a 
strong alliance between their two groups but it is unknown if it

Leader: Tommy Vercetti
Clothes/ colours: Hawaiian shirts and navy blue pants. 
Vehicles: Unknown 
Activity: Protection, drug trafficking, counterfeiting.

In the mid 1980's the Vercetti gang appeared, basically, overnight.  
After completely getting rid of the Diaz (Columbian) gang, the Vercetti 
gang took over most of their property.  The Vercetti's were involved in 
tons of property acquisition which included such companies as the Print 
Works, Boatyard, Kauffmann Cabs, Pole Position, and several others.  
After an attempt to destroy the gang by their former allies, the 
Forelli's, the Vercetti gang settled in to their spot at the top of 
Vice City.  It is unknown what has happened since.  It is reported that 
the Vercetti Gang was still running Vice City in 1992.

Storyline: In 1986, after Tommy Vercetti killed Ricardo Diaz and most 
of his gang, he took over Diaz' mansion.  The new 'Vercetti' mansion on 
Starfish Island became the central base for the Vercetti gang.  They 
purchased several companies as fronts for their activities.  Soon 
enough, Tommy Vercetti's former bosses came looking for him.  Tommy and 
the Vercetti gang took care of the Forelli threat and continued to gain 
influence in the city.  It is unknown what happened after that time.

Turf: Torrington
Leader: 1998 - Kasuki, 2001 - Asuka & Kenji, currently unknown
Clothes/ colours: Black suits, black clothing. 
Vehicles: Yakuza Stinger 
Activity: Gambling, extortion. 

In 1998, the Yakuza had an immense arsenal.  This included a tank and 
other military weapons.  However, the Leone Family were able to destroy 
a lot of this weaponry and slow the Yakuza take over in Torrington.  
Unfortunately for the Leone's, the Yakuza still managed to take over 
Torrington on Staunton Island.  The Yakuza continued their turf war 
with the Leone Family and started one with the Columbian Cartel.  These 
turf wars continued through 2001.  However, the Leone Family would 
suffer a significant blow from the Yakuza.  The Yakuza managed to kill 
Salvatore Leone, the Don of the family.  The Yakuza would suffer as 
well as both Kenji and his sister Asuka, the leaders of the Yakuza, 
were killed.  Both were killed by the Columbian Cartel.  The Cartel 
would be almost completely wiped out shortly after that.  It is unknown 
what happened afterwards in the Yakuza gang.

Storyline: In 1998, the Yakuza was building up their arsenal in Liberty 
City.  However, the leader, Kasuki Kasen, had a very upset wife.  They 
were in an arranged marriage and he prefered the company of men to her 
(you catch my drift?). She wanted to see her husband dead and his gang 
destroyed after he paid more attention to it then her.  So she hired 
Toni Cipriani who eventually killed Kasuki and destroyed the arsenal of 
the gang.  Even so, they managed to take Torrington on Staunton Island 
from the Leone Family.  In 2001, the Yakuza were in turf wars with the 
Leone Family and the Columbian Cartel.  Asuka, one of the leaders, 
would partner up with a former employee of the Leone Family after he 
was betrayed.  This person was Claude.  Claude would kill Salvatore 
Leone and several assassin groups of Leone Family members searching for 
Claude.  Having put this war behind them, the Yakuza focused on the 
Columbian Cartel.  Asuka and Kenji sent Claude on several missions to 
stop their activities.  Claude would eventually work for a media tycoon 
named Donald Love.  Donald set up a plan to kill Kenji and frame the 
Cartel.  It worked.  The Yakuza believed the Cartel killed Kenji.  
Asuka launched a war of revenge against the Cartel and their 
operations.  But Asuka would eventually be killed by the Cartel leader, 
Catalina.  It is unknown what happened with the gang after that.

----------------------------------------------------------- 
C27. Yardies

City: Liberty City
Turf: Newport
Leader: King Courtney
Clothes/ colours: Tan coloured vest and pants. 
Vehicles: Yardie Lobo 
Activity: Car racing, drug dealing 
 
The Yardies are a street gang similar to the Diablos.  They focus on 
street racing and dealing of drugs.  In 2001, the Yardies were allied 
with the Columbian Cartel to produce and distribute a new drug called 
SPANK.  The Yardies' drug fronts, coffee stands, would be destroyed 
that year by the Yakuza.  The Yardies would suffer another blow later 
as the Columbian Cartel was almost completely wiped out.  It is most 
likely that the Yardies simply went back to the regular drug dealing 
and car racing activities.

Storyline: In 2001, the Yardies allied with the Columbian Cartel to 
distribute SPANK across Liberty City.  During the same time, Claude 
worked for them on a few missions to help collect cars and to try and 
wipe out the Diablos in Portland.  Once Claude was done with them he 
was working for the Yakuza and destroyed the Yardies' front, their 
coffee stands.  Claude would later be responsible for the destruction 
of the Columbian Cartel and he wiped most of them out as well.  It is 
likely that the Yardies continued on with drug selling and car racing.

D. Characters

Well we've gone through the gangs and cities of the Grand Theft Auto 
universe but now we get down to the characters.  No two characters in 
the GTA universe are the same.  Different past experiences and 
circumstances change people's lives and set them down their own path.  
This section will go through some of the more influential people in 
Grand Theft Auto.  As I have previously stated, if you have any 
comments or wish I add someone's profile then email me and I will work 
it out for you.  This section contains background information and a few 
comments from me.

an explosives expert that operates 3 shops across Liberty City.  In 
1998, 8-Ball helped out Toni Cipriani on several missions he did for 
Donald Love.  This was probably why he had such strong ties with the 
Leone Family by GTA III (2001).  Prior to the events in GTA III, 8-Ball 
suffered injuries to both his hands.  Although it was believe to be 
caused by a cop spilling hot oil/ fat on them, GTA Advance reveals that 
he suffered these injuries from a gang ambush.  By 2001, 8-Ball is on 
his way to jail with his hands bandaged up.  However, the Columbian 
Cartel attack his police escort to break another man out.  8-Ball and a 
man he just met named Claude (you may know him) used this opportunity 
to escape.  8-Ball went back to work and introduced Claude to the Leone 
Family.  8-Ball provide Claude with his explosive expertise on several 
occasions including joining Claude when he blew up a Cartel tanker.  
However, the Leone Family betray Claude.  Nothing is heard from 8-Ball 
after this.  It is assumed that he carried on regular business 
operations.

in Vice City and the San Andreas state.  He sure does get around.

D16. Claude

Full name: Claude

started dating Catalina after she broke up with CJ.  Claude and CJ 
raced for pink slips but Claude lost.  He handed over the deed to his

City.  In 2001, they robbed a bank.  On the way out Catalina shot 
Claude stating that he was only small time.  Claude was sent to jail.  
But on the trip to Liberty City Penitentiary the Columbian Cartel 
inadvertently broke Claude out.  He started work for the Leone Family 
but was eventually betrayed by them.  Claude then killed Salvatore 
Leone as payback for the betrayal.  Claude continued on his quest for 
revenge by working for the Yakuza.  Eventually, Claude was able to kill 
Catalina after she kidnapped Claude's girlfriend, Maria.  He saved 
Maria and they moved on.  But at the end of the game a shotgun blast 
can be heard after Maria wouldn't shut up.

Comments: Claude's name was speculated at during GTA III.  He was never 
referred to by name.  Claude was the name fans gave him as some of the 
GTA III disc files referred to the name Claude.  This would later be 
confirmed in GTA San Andreas when, after you have completed the game, 
Catalina calls and yells out Claude's name during their intimate love 
making.  Claude's silence was also referred to in San Andreas.  When 
Claude doesn't respond to CJ's threats, CJ calls him a mute.  So this 
could mean that Claude actually is mute.

E. Storyline by Timeline

Now that we have a huge background of information about places, gangs, 
and people in the Grand Theft Auto universe it is time to put it all 
together.  The storyline in each game has several key relations to what 
happens or what has happened in the other games.  It really shows the 
player that this is one big world and everything is connected in even 
the slightest way.  We are all connected!  Freaky.  Well, lets get to 
it.

-----------------------------------------------------------
E1. 1971-1983

1971 - Tommy Vercetti worked for the Forelli Mafia Family in Liberty 
City.  He was around 20 years old at this time.  He was a regular thug 
for the family and got things accomplished.  Sonny Forelli, the leader 
of the Forelli Family, asked Tommy to meet someone.  Tommy arrives and 
finds a dozen or so men waiting for him.  Tommy has been set up.  Tommy 
manages to kill all the men but is arrested and charges with drug 
dealing and multiple counts of murder.  Sonny Forelli pulls a few 
strings so he doesn't have to serve life sentences but Tommy still gets 
15 years in prison.  Tommy earns the name the "Harwood Butcher" for the 
massacre of all the men.  The Forelli's may have pulled some strings 
but they leave him to root in jail for the next 15 years.

-----------------------------------------------------------
E2. 1984

1984 - Victor Vance and Lance Vance start up their drug selling 
activities in Vice City.  It is believed that Victor wanted nothing to 
do with the drug business but his brother (Lance) got him into it.  
Eventually, Victor Vance does the dirty work for the brothers and helps 
to establish them in Vice City.  (The events of GTA Vice City Stories - 
coming out Oct. 2006 for PSP).

-----------------------------------------------------------
E3. 1985

Mid 1980's (1984 or 1985) - Salvatore is in a power struggle in Sicily 
("the old country") over control of the Leone Mafia Family.  
Salvatore's brother is involved in the battle as well but Salvatore 
manages to win and control the family.  He comes to Liberty City some 
time after.

1985 - It can be assumed that sometime in the mid 1980's (1984 or 1985) 
that CJ, Sweet, Big Smoke, and Ryder started up the Grove Street 
Families in Los Santos.  This is based on the confirmation that the 
group existed and was pretty well organized by 1987.

-----------------------------------------------------------
E4. 1986

The events of GTA Vice City.

Tommy Vercetti is released from jail this year after serving 15 years 
in prison for murder and drug dealing.  Tommy has always had his 
suspicions that he was set up by the Forelli Family but welcomes the 
opportunity to get back to work.  Sonny decides to send Tommy Vercetti 
down to Vice City in order to keep him out of Liberty City.  Sonny 
worries that Liberty City gangs will remember Tommy from what he has 
done and if he is seen walking the streets it will be "bad for 
business".  Tommy is sent down to Vice City with $3 million dollars.  
He is ordered to use the money to purchase some drugs and start up the 
Forelli operations down there.  Tommy arrives in Vice City and meets 
the Forelli contact in Vice City,  Ken Rosenburg.  Ken drives Tommy and 
two Forelli men to a meeting point for the deal.  Upon arriving they 
see a helicopter fly in and a men gets out with two briefcases.  These 
are the Vance brothers (Lance is in the helicopter). Tommy and the 
Forelli men get out and walk up to him. They look over the merchandise 
as the man looks over the money.  Suddenly, they are shot at killing 
the two Forelli men and the drug dealer.  Tommy jumps in the car with 
Ken and they take off as the helicopter flies away.  While they are 
driving back Ken is hysterical.  He knows that the Forelli's won't be 
happy that the drugs and money are gone.  Tommy tells him to relax and 
they will start fixing this problem in the morning.  Ken stops at his 
office and enters while Tommy heads off to his new hotel room at the 
Ocean View.  Tommy calls up Sonny to inform him of the situation.  
Sonny starts off by remembering old times and then asks about the deal.  
Tommy gives it to Sonny start that the drugs and money are gone.  Sonny 
is furious by this.  As Sonny lashes out at Tommy, Tommy guarantees him 
that he will get the money back and "mail you the dicks of those 
responsible".  Sonny states that he knows Tommy will do this and if it 
was anyone else they would be dead.  The call ends with a pissed of 
Tommy throwing the phone.

In the morning, Tommy visits Ken Rosenburg's law office.  Apparently, 
all the bridges in Vice City have been closed do to an approaching 
hurricane.  Ken indicates that he has been up all night worrying.  
Tommy tells him to calm down and that they need to get into the loop.  
Ken offers Tommy his party invitation on board Colonel Juan Garcia 
Cortez' boat.  He is the man that helped set up the deal.  Tommy takes 
the invitation and heads over, stopping at Rafael's clothing store to 
get more appropriate clothing.  Tommy enters the yacht and is welcomed 
by Colonel Cortez.  He shares his distress and apologies for the 
problems with the deal and states that he has launched a full 
investigation into what happened.  Colonel Cortez' daughter walks up at 
that moment and he introduces her.  Mercedes Cortez takes Tommy around 
the rest of the party and names off some of the key people.  Just as 
they are talking a short, loud man shows up and congratulates the 
colonel on his party.  Ricardo Diaz is his name and he calls out to 
Mercedes.  She says that she is leaving with Tommy to go back into 
town.  As they walk out Tommy is instructed to take her to the Pole 
Position Strip Club.  He does so and she hopes to see him around.  Upon 
returning to Ken's office, Tommy finds him even more paranoid.  Ken 
asks what he found out but Tommy states, "that there are more criminals 
in this town then in prison."  Tommy wants a lead from the streets.  
Ken refers him to Kent Paul who is a usual gossip magnet and is always 
at the Malibu.  Tommy meets him there and pushes Kent around for some 
information.  Kent informs him that a chef on Ocean Drive has been 
acting "pleased with himself" and that Tommy should check him out.  
Tommy heads over and finds the chef on a cell phone.  When the chef is 
uncooperative, Tommy kills him.  Tommy takes his phone and is met by 
another man.  This is Lance Vance.  Lance states that they are on the 
same side and should work together.  When Tommy rejects him, three of 
the chef's friends appear and chase them.  They enter Lance's car and 
make the getaway.  Tommy and Lance talk for a bit and Lance drops him 
off at the Ocean View stating that he'll be watching Tommy.

Tommy proceeded back to Ken's office to check on him later on.  Ken was 
still nervous and stated that Tommy had to go and make some jurors 
change their minds or Sonny Forelli's cousin, Giorgio, would go to 
jail.  Tommy managed to wreck two juror's cars which helped them change 
their minds.  Tommy again headed back to Ken's office to see what he 
has come up with.  Upon entering he finds Ken sitting down with an 
elderly man named Avery Carrington.  Avery needs Tommy's help and in 
return he will help take care of any of the people giving Tommy 
trouble.  Tommy thinks that is far and listens to Avery talk about a 
company that he wants out of business.  Tommy heads over to the 
business and starts a riot with a group of striking workers.  Tommy 
enters the facility and destroys their work trucks.  Upon finishing 
this task Tommy is called by Colonel Cortez to come meet him when he 
can.  Tommy also does some more work for Avery including killing a man 
at the Leaf Links Golf Course in order to obtain some land and 
destroying a building under construction so he can purchase it and put 
up his own.

Tommy finally decides to head over to Cortez' yacht.  When he arrives 
he is informed by Cortez that one of his men, Gonzalez, may have leaked 
the information about the drug deal to someone.  Cortez states that he 
has been carrying Gonzalez for years and it is time for Tommy to end 
it.  Tommy travels over to Gonzalez' apartment right away and kills 
him.  Tommy continues to return to Cortez' boat for more missions 
although he grows tired as he isn't getting closer to his money.  Tommy 
meets a courier at the Washington Mall to pick up some technology.  
When the French Police show up the courier runs but Tommy chases him 
down and kills him.  Cortez then trusts Tommy with watching over a drug 
deal between Cortez' friend, Ricardo Diaz, and some Cubans.  Lance 
joins Tommy for this task.  They manage to kill the Haitians that try 
to break up the deal and Diaz is appreciative of Tommy for this.  
Looking around for Lance after the deal, Tommy can't find him.  At the 
same time, Tommy receives a call from Ricardo thanking him again.  
Ricardo invites Tommy over to his mansion to help him out with some 
stuff.

Tommy is quick to head over to Diaz' mansion on Starfish Island as he 
is beginning to suspect that Diaz is the one that broke up Tommy's drug 
deal.  When Tommy arrives at Diaz' mansion, Diaz is pissed off like 
normal.  He asks who Tommy is but remembers and apologizes for being 
agitated.  He states that a dealer of his is taking an extra cut of his 
profits and Diaz requests that Tommy follows him and finds out where he 
takes it.  Tommy gets to the mans house and chases after him.  He 
enters a car with another man and Tommy is in pursuit.  The dealer 
shoots at Tommy but Tommy misses all the shots.  Tommy eventually 
follows him to a rundown house on Prawn Island.  Tommy reports back to 
Diaz.  Diaz says that the house is a fortress at ground level and must 
be attacked from the sky.  Therefore, he assigns Quentin (Lance Vance) 
to fly you out to the house.  As Tommy and Lance go to the helicopter, 
Tommy finds that Lance has come to the same conclusion about Diaz being 
the one to ruin their deal.  Tommy tells Lance to stay out of it and 
let him handle it but Lance disagrees.  They enter the helicopter and 
fly over to the island.  Tommy takes out most of the men on the roof 
and adjacent buildings before Lance drops him off.  Tommy is left to 
enter the building, clean out the rest of the men, and obtain the cash.  
He proceeds in and kills the remaining men and gets the briefcase of 
cash from the roof.  Lance picks Tommy up and they head back to Diaz' 
mansion (for cookies and milk!).  The radio also announces that the 
hurricane has passed and the bridges are all open again.

As Tommy sorts through the information he has been obtaining he 
receives a call from Colonel Cortez.  He tells Tommy to come see him as 
he has more work for him.  Tommy has also received several calls from 
Sonny Forelli who is growing more and more impatient with Tommy 
producing no results.  Heading over to the colonel's yacht, Tommy knows 
that the colonel may have some more information for him regarding 
Tommy's deal.  When Tommy arrives he finds that Cortez also believes 
that Diaz was the one that stole the drugs and money.  But Cortez has 
another matter for you to attend to.  He needs you to steal a tank from 
an amry convoy and bring it to his lock up.  Tommy heads over and stops 
the convoy.  He attacks it and takes out most of the soldiers.  Tommy 
gets in the tank and a detonation count down is activated.  Knowing 
that he doesn't have much time he heads over to the hold and Cortez' 
men disarm the bomb.

Wanting to keep up his relationship with Diaz, Tommy heads back and 
Diaz tasks him with stealing a new boat from the boatyard.  It is said 
to be the fastest boat out there and Diaz needs it.  Tommy heads over 
and encounters some security guards.  Tommy kills them, steals the 
boat, and heads back to Diaz' mansion.  Arriving there he goes and 
talks with Diaz about a dealer that comes to Vice City once a month and 
sells its cargo to the first boat that reaches it.  Tommy heads to 
Diaz' new boat again.  When he arrives he finds Lance waiting for him 
in the boat.  They agree to team up for this mission.  As they head to 
the dealer Lance asks Tommy why they won't finish Diaz off now.  Tommy 
says that, "the more we learn now, the less we have to learn when we 
take this town over".  Lance agrees.  Finding the competition to be in 
abundance, Tommy continues on and gets to the dealer first.  He 
purchases the goods.  However, the other buyers won't let them leave 
alive with the drugs and they chase after him.  Lance takes control of 
the wheel as Tommy fires back at the other dealers on boat, on land, 
and in a helicopter.  They make it back and Tommy delivers the drugs to 
Diaz.

Tommy promptly receives a call from Lance stating that they can and 
should take out Diaz now.  Tommy states that they will do it eventually 
or they will be dead.  Some time later Tommy receives a call from Kent 
Paul with information about Lance.  Tommy heads to the Malibu Club 
right away as he has a feeling the information isn't good.  Arriving at 
the club, Tommy finds his suspicions to be correct as Lance tried to 
jump Diaz but was captured instead.  He is being held at the junkyard 
by Diaz men and doesn't have long to live.  Tommy leaves in a hurry.  
He heads over to the junkyard upset at Lance ruining his plan.  
Arriving there he finds heavy security.  Tommy breaks through it and 
finds Lance in a warehouse at the far end.  Tommy is pissed off at 
Lance for jumping the gun but Lance merely states, "He killed my 
brother.  What do you want me to do?  Mow his lawn?"  Tommy and Lance 
leave the junkyard but are chased by more Diaz men.  They lose them and 
Tommy takes Lance to the hospital and tells Lance to meet him outside 
Diaz' mansion.  A while later, Lance joins Tommy outside the walls of 
Diaz' estate.  Lance opens the trunk to his car and reveals some heavy 
weaponry.  They enter Diaz' property and kill all of his men outside.  
Tommy and Lance enter the mansion and kill the men in there to.  Once 
they reach the central hallway they are confronted by Diaz.  He yells 
at Tommy for betraying him.  Tommy and Lance gun down Ricardo Diaz but 
he isn't dead.  They walk over to a crawling Diaz as he yells at Tommy 
for betraying him and ruining his house.  Tommy and Lance decide to 
finish the job and they both shoot him point blank.  They have 
destroyed the Diaz Gang and now are free to rule Vice City their way.

Tommy now heads over to see Colonel Cortez as he says he is in 
desperate need of his help.  Tommy heads in to find Cortez preparing to 
leave Vice City.  Tommy offers to be an extra gun and Cortez is 
grateful for his help.  As they proceed along the river they are chased 
by some federal agents on boats.  the men on Cortez' boat, Tommy 
included, destroy these ships.  But there is another setback.  There is 
a block of ships under the next bridge.  They destroy the ships even 
while being attacked by some helicopters.  Cortez thanks Tommy for 
everything and asks him to watch his daughter, Mercedes.  Tommy states 
that Mercedes can take care of herself but he will watch her.  As a 
parting gift, Cortez offers Tommy his personal launch boat.  Tommy 
heads back to his newly acquired mansion and to begin to setup his 
empire.

Entering the house Tommy meets up with Avery, Rosenburg, and Lance as 
they discuss the next steps in their new business.  Avery suggest real 
estate while Ken goes over the interior decorating of the mansion.  
Lance brings up that the businesses in Vice City know that Diaz is dead 
and they won't pay protection.  Tommy has a plan to make them pay.  He 
heads over to the North Point Mall and destroys several of the business 
displays and setups to make sure they know who they're dealing with.  
Tommy returns to the mansion with the success of this.  The stores will 
now pay protection.

As Tommy returns he finds Lance sitting at the bar.  Tommy asks what 
the problem is and Lance states that a bar is refusing to pay 
protection but he will handle it.  Tommy isn't satisfied with Lance 
sitting around and decides to take care of it himself.  He heads over 
to Ocean Drive and kills the guards there.  Talking with the owner he 
finds that DC Security has been paid to protect them. Tommy heads there 
and takes out the security guards.  He heads back to his mansion again.  
Upon arriving he finds Lance yelling and a man named Mike because he 
was supposed to torch a store in the mall and screwed up the fuses.  
Lance suggests that they leave as the cops will find out it was them 
soon enough but Tommy doesn't like that idea.  He's worked too hard for 
what he has.  Tommy knows that the police investigation will take time 
so he proposes that Lance and himself head to the mall and fix the 
bomb.  But first they need police uniforms.  Tommy and Lance head out 
and lure two officers into a garage and take their gear.  Grabbing a 
cop car they head to the mall which is crawling with security and head 
in.  They find the store and fix the bomb.  As they run from the store 
it blows up and they are quickly chased after by the police forces.  
Tommy and Lance loose the cops and make it back to the mansion.  A 
short time later Tommy receives a call from a very emotional Lance 
telling Tommy not to treat him like a little kid and cut him a fair 
slice.  Tommy reassures him that he would never stab him in the back 
but Lance has been screwing up.  Tommy tells Lance to take some time 
off.

Building his empire up, Tommy decides to buy some companies as fronts.  
He purchase the Malibu Club, Kaufmann's Cab, Cherry Popper Ice Cream, 
the Printworks, and several other companies.  When Tommy purchases the 
club he realizes that he needs some funds in order to restore the club.  
He decides that he needs to rob the Vice City Bank to "withdrawal" the 
funds needed.  However, Tommy knows that he needs to get a team 
together.  He first breaks an explosive expert, Cam Jones, out of 
prison.  Then he beats a weapons specialist, Phil Cassidy, in a gun 
shootout to gain his services.  Lastly, Tommy beats a driver, Hilary 
King, in a race to get his services.  They head to the bank and pull of 
the heist but Hilary is killed as they leave.  Cam is shot and is it 
unknown if he survives (in the game he can die or live, it doesn't 
matter).  Tommy and Phil escape and split the money.  Tommy wastes no 
time in celebrating as he performs some tasks for his other businesses 
in order to ensure their success.  His most proud purchase, Printworks, 
is where Tommy has fond memories of helping his father when he was 
young at a similar facility.  Tommy steals some plates so the printers 
can start printing money.

Tommy has finally secured himself in Vice City.  But he has much to do 
still.  He returns to see Avery and perform one finally job for him.  
Avery introduces Tommy to his new apprentice, Donald Love, and informs 
Tommy that "nothing brings down real estates prices quicker than a good 
old-fashioned gang war".  He continues by stating that a Haitian leader 
has been killed, no one is sure if the rival Cubans have done it but 
Avery wants to make them sure.  He suggests that Tommy dresses like a 
Cuban and crashes the funeral and kills the Haitian leader there.  
Tommy agrees and heads off the Little Haiti.  Upon arrival, Tommy finds 
heavy security but he breaks through and kills most of the Haitians in 
the process.  Tommy then takes out the leader and leaves Little Haiti.  
Once Tommy is finished he gets a call from the Cuban leader, Umberto 
Robina, who wants to meet with him.  Tommy heads over but also gets a 
call from Kent Paul suggesting he come see him at the recording studio.  
Tommy continues to Umberto's cafe in Little Havana.  He arrives and 
Umberto mocks him at first and asks if he has big "cojones".  He 
suggests that Tommy take out their boat and prove himself.  Tommy does 
this successfully and heads back to Umberto's.  When he is heading 
back, Tommy receives a call from a women named Auntie Poulet, she 
suggests that he comes and sees her.  Returning to the cafe, Umberto 
requests that Tommy goes and backs up some of his men in Little Haiti.  
Tommy grabs a car a 3 Cubans and heads over.  They fight there way in 
and steal a Haitian van and take it back to the cafe.  Tommy is again 
requested by Umberto to help him with taking out the Haitians.  This 
time Umberto wants Tommy to disrupt a Haitian deal, steal the cash and 
drugs, and bring it back to him.  Tommy heads over and kills everyone.  
He grabs the cash and drugs and races back to the cafe chased by cops 
and Haitians.

Tommy decides he needs to break from this and heads over to Auntie 
Poulet's house.  There Tommy seems to be in a fog and under the powers 
of Auntie Poulet.  She tells Tommy that he needs to recover some simple 
magical powders from around town for him as the Cubans have told the 
cops they are illegal drugs.  Tommy heads around town and acquires 
these powders and heads back.  He enters the house and again forgets 
what he is doing there.  Auntie Poulet wants Tommy to kill Cubans and 
destroy their supply boats.  Tommy doesn't resist killing his allied 
gang as he is under Auntie Poulet's power.  Tommy drives to a van and 
takes control of some miniature planes and bombs the boats.  Later 
Tommy comes back to Auntie Poulet's house, still in a fog, and she 
instructs him to use a sniper rifle and help the Haitians beat the 
Cubans in a street fight.  Tommy does so and helps them succeed even 
after the Cubans bring in reinforcements.  Auntie Poulet calls Tommy 
afterwards and releases him from her hold.

Tommy, free again, heads back to Umberto's cafe, completely unaware of 
what he has done for Auntie Poulet.  When Tommy arrives he is met with 
an angry Umberto who suggests that Tommy is two-faced since the 
Haitians are laughing at him.  Tommy simply says that Umberto is the 
reason for this but he can help him out.  Umberto wants to end the 
Haitian threat by destroying their drug factory.  Tommy gets a Haitian 
car and heads into the Haitian factory area with the other Cubans.  
Tommy enters the facility as the Haitians and Cubans fight it out and 
sets some bombs.  Tommy and the Cubans run for their lives as the place 
explodes in a huge fireball.  Umberto hears of the success and tells 
Tommy that he is a Cuban to them.

Tommy has finally settled the unrest in Little Haiti and Havana so he 
heads to the recording studio to meet Kent Paul.  He finds Love Fist 
there with him and complements the guys on their music.  Tommy performs 
several jobs for them including killing a stalker, who comes back and 
tries to kill them, getting security for the concert by doing some jobs 
for the local Biker gang, and driving them to the concert.  They are 
thankful for Tommy's help and Tommy has now gained another ally in the 
Bikers.

Tommy is in full control but soon he is called by Sonny stating that he 
is coming down to collect.  Tommy heads over to the Printworks and 
finds that some of Sonny's collectors have come there.  Tommy heads off 
to stop the collectors from getting all his facilities.  Tommy meets up 
with them and quickly kills the men.  Tommy knows that Sonny will be 
extremely pissed off now and will be coming down himself.  Tommy rushes 
back to his mansion on Starfish Island and gathers $3 million for 
Sonny.  The money is fake and Tommy hopes that this will make Sonny 
happy.  Sonny arrives and Tommy hands off the money, however, Lance 
reveals that he is now working for the Forelli's and has told them 
about the fake money.  Lance informs Sonny where the real money is.  
Tommy runs up to his office to protect his safe.  Sonny sends in 
several men but Tommy takes care of them and chases after Lance who is 
heading for the roof.  Tommy meets Lance there and shows no compassion 
as he kills Lance and heads back to his office.  Tommy meets up with 
Sonny and his guards.  Tommy kills Sonny's guards and then kills Sonny.  
Tommy watches Sonny die and then realizes that his empire is free.  He 
is left to run Vice City as he sees fit.

The events of 'The Introduction' (GTA San Andreas special DVD)

Officer Frank Tenpenny and Officer Eddie Pulaski are assigned a new 
partner to join them in the Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums 
(C.R.A.S.H.) division.  His name is Officer Jimmy Hernandez.  Hernandez 
is a good cop that wants to help the city of Los Santos from the drug 
dealing crime that has overtaken it.  Hernandez joins Tenpenny and 
Pulaski and they start to show him the ropes.  Tenpenny discusses how 
sometimes you have to let the little guys go in order to get the bigger 
ones.  He says the only way to fight crime is to control it and 
Hernandez needs to understand that.  Hernandez says he does and they 
begin to teach him more.

In the meantime, the Grove Street Families have fallen apart thanks to 
the influence of drugs. Big Smoke has tried time and time again to 
convince Sweet that his stance on drugs is what's killing the family.  
Big Smoke tries to turn Sweet but it won't work.  However, Big Smoke is 
successful in getting Ryder to see the bigger picture and join him in 
the drug business.  They meet with Tenpenny who comes up with a plan to 
help end the Grove Street Families.

Later, a green Sabre is seen heading towards Grove Street in the night.  
It heads down the street and suddenly opens fire on the houses.  Sweet 
and everyone else stays out of the way.  Sweet comes out blasting but 
then sees his fallen mother in her doorway. He rushes over but sees she 
is dead.  Kendl comes over but Sweet stops her and hugs her.  Sweet 
calls up CJ in Liberty City and tells him what happened.  CJ decides to 
come home.

The next day Officer Tenpenny, Pulaski, and Hernandez have beat the 
crap out of another cop.  Tenpenny identifies him as Officer Pendelbury 
who is trying to get in his way and stop Tenpenny and the C.R.A.S.H. 
members.  Tenpenny suggests that Hernandez shoots Pendelbury to prove 
he is willing to do what it takes to save the streets.  Hernandez is 
hesitant but Tenpenny helps him and he shoots Pendelbury.

The events of GTA San Andreas

CJ is making the long trip home after finding out his mom was killed by 
a drive-by.  Landing in Los Santos International Airport he grabs his 
bag and a taxi out front.  But the taxi only gets part of the way to 
Grove Street as it is pulled over by a police car.  They demand that 
the passenger, CJ, get out and lie down on the ground.  CJ complies and 
finds that it is Officer Tenpenny, Pulaski, and the new guy, Hernandez.  
Pulaski tells the cab to take off even though he has CJ's bag in the 
trunk.  Tenpenny takes CJ's money and they enter the car and drive off.  
CJ asks what Tenpenny wants as he is clean and legit now and only cam 
back for his mom's funeral.  Tenpenny then places the blame of Officer 
Pendelbury's death on CJ.  The officer was gunned down "not 10 minutes 
ago" and now it is being blamed on CJ.  The C.R.A.S.H. team get a 
transmission over the radio about the murder and are asked to 
investigate so they toss CJ out of the car and head over there.  CJ 
tells them not to leave him as he is in Ballas' territory.  They ignore 
him and take off.  CJ stands for a minute realizing that he is being 
forced back into all the crap he left 5 years ago.  He grabs a bike 
near him and pedals his way back to his old neighbourhood.

Upon arriving, CJ enters his mom's house and is overcome with emotion.  
He remembers back when Brian was killed and the pain is too much.  He 
finds a picture of his mom and sits at the table and thinks about the 
situation.  Suddenly, a large man runs in holding a baseball bat and 
threatening him.  CJ recognizes him as Big Smoke and after a few 
seconds Big Smoke remembers, drops the bat, and hugs CJ.  He asks how 
CJ is and CJ simply states that "Na man, it's my mom".  Big Smoke says 
that they should head over to the cemetery for the funeral.  Once they 
arrive at the cemetery they find Sweet, Kendl, and Ryder standing over 
the grave.  CJ walks up and hugs Kendl but Sweet immediately blasts him 
for missing the funeral and running out 5 years ago.  Kendl is tired of 
listening to this so she heads off to see her boyfriend, a Mexican.  
Sweet stops her and says she can't date him but she merely walks off.  
As she does, Sweet states how bad things are and Sweet proceeds to show 
CJ the graves of dead Grove Street Family members.  Big Smoke, Ryder, 
Sweet, and CJ head back to Big Smoke's car.  As they do a group of 
Ballas pop out and blow up Big Smoke's car with gunfire.  The four of 
them grab bikes and pedal all the way back to Grove Street.  Once they 
arrive the four men split up to do there own thing.

A short time later CJ gets a call from Sweet informing him that the 
groups that formed the Grove Street Families have split and have been 
fighting among themselves.  CJ takes the advice and heads to Ryder's 
house to find him loading a gun.  Ryder states his displeasure for a 
local pizza place that covered up his graffiti tags on their building.  
He wants to show them a lesson and asks if CJ wants to come along.  CJ 
does and they drive over.  But on the way over Ryder begins to 
criticize CJ's look and suggests he gets a haircut first.  CJ does and 
they enter the pizza place.  CJ orders some food and proceeds to eat 
but Ryder runs up and attempts to rob the place.  The clerk knows it is 
Ryder and is unimpressed.  CJ argues with Ryder and the clerk pulls out 
a shotgun and chases them.  Ryder and CJ hoop back in the car and head 
back to Grove Street.  On the way back Ryder suggests that CJ go see 
Sweet who is also upset about the graffiti tags.  CJ heads over to 
Sweet and they go for a drive.  They head to Ballas turf and spray the 
Grove Street logos over 6 of the Ballas tags.  They head back to Grove 
Street.  CJ and Sweet have things to do so they agree to meet up later.  
CJ then receives a call from Officer Hernandez warning CJ not to leave 
town.

CJ proceed back in Sweet's house and finds Ryder sitting with Sweet.  
Sweet is pissed that drugs have destroyed the gang and wants Ryder and 
CJ to clean things up.  They leave the house and head over to see some 
old friends, Big Bear and B-Dup.  Upon arrival they find that B-Dup is 
now a drug dealer and Big Bear has become a slave to him for drugs.  B-
Dup tells them to screw off and slams the door.  CJ is beginning to see 
how bad things have become and they decide to take out some drug 
dealers.  They head outside and find that a drug dealer is selling to 
one of their men.  CJ and Ryder head over and kill the dealer.  Ryder 
recognizes the guy and says that he lives in Idlewood.  So CJ and Ryder 
proceed over there and break in on some Ballas and kill them all.  
Ryder and CJ go back to Grove Street and agree to meet up later.

When CJ heads back to Sweet's house he finds the boys leaving and they 
agree to go eat.  CJ drives them to a Cluckin' Bell.  On the way they 
discuss CJ's mom and how a Green Sabre was seen speeding away after.  
The boys pull up and order the food, however, when they receive it a 
Ballas' car notices them and shoots at them.  They begin to chase the 
Ballas and shoot back.  Big Smoke decides to sit back and eat while the 
others fight.  They eventually kill the Ballas and head back home.  On 
the way back they realize that Big Smoke has eaten all the food.  CJ 
drops the men off at their houses and notes that Big Smoke has moved to 
Idlewood.  After a while CJ heads to Sweet's house and finds Sweet with 
all the boys.  They discuss that the family needs to get some firepower 
if they are to face off with the Ballas.  CJ recommends Emmet while the 
others tell him they aren't close to Emmet anymore.  CJ reinstates that 
they need to go back to someone that has always been there for them.  
Big Smoke and CJ head off to Emmet's.  When they arrive at Emmet's he 
is jumping and almost shoots the men.  Emmet then realizes what hey are 
and shows them his stock.  Big Smoke notes how crappy the weapons are 
but they take some handguns and buy them.  Upon returning Big Smoke 
back home, Sweet calls CJ and accuses him of not supporting the family 
because he hasn't been dressed in their colours.  CJ apologizes and 
heads to the nearest clothing store and sports some green clothing to 
support the Grove Street Families.  CJ heads back to Sweet's house and 
the men all decide to do a drive-by on some Ballas to show them that 
Grove Street is back.  Heading over to Idlewood they attack a group of 
Ballas and kill them.  The gang head around the corner and kill some 
more.  After that they head to Glen Park and kill another group of 
Ballas.  Out racing the police they head back to Grove Street and agree 
to meet up later.

CJ heads back to Sweet's house and finds no one home but gets a call 
from Sweet who is pinned down in Seville by a former allied faction, 
the Seville Boulevard Families.  CJ races over and takes out the gunmen 
and picks up Sweet and his girl.  They lose the Seville men and head 
back to Sweet's house where CJ drops them off.  A short time later CJ 
heads into Sweet's house and finds Sweet argue with Kendl.  She's going 
to go see Cesar and Sweet can't stop her.  Kendl leaves and before CJ 
can say anything Sweet tells him to follow her and see what his problem 
is.  So CJ heads off and gets a low-rider.  He heads to the meeting 
place by Union Station and is challenged to some hydraulics action.  CJ 
wins the challenge and Kendl runs over and congratulates him.  Cesar 
comes over and congratulates him too but CJ becomes protective when he 
touches Kendl.  Kendl tries to calm CJ while Cesar holds back his boys.  
Cesar and CJ talk and agree to be cool with each other.  After Cesar 
and Kendl leave Cesar calls CJ and ask if he wants to be in some 
illegal racing.  CJ agrees and drives over to Cesar's house.  When he 
arrives Cesar and Kendl lead him to the race.  This is a low-rider race 
and CJ ends up winning it.  Afterwards CJ gathers his winnings and 
heads to Ryder's place.  When he arrives Ryder wants to steal some guns 
from a retired military guy and they head over to his house.  CJ sneaks 
in and grabs the weapons and they drive the truck back to a storage 
garage.  Ryder insults CJ for complaining and they agree to meet up 
later.

The Grove Street Families are starting to gain their influence back 
thanks to CJ.  CJ heads to Ryder's house and when he enters he sees 
Officer Tenpenny and his men arrive and give CJ and Ryder a hard time.  
They give the boys an assignment and tell them to head over to a train.  
CJ and Ryder arrive to find the Vagos are there.  They kill the Vagos 
men when the Ballas show up.  Tenpenny must have told every gang in 
town.  Once it is clear CJ hoops on the train and Ryder follows in his 
car.  CJ tosses some boxes to Ryder and gets off the train.  They head 
back to Ryder's.  Later on CJ meets Ryder who suggests they get some 
top grade weapons from the National Guard.  CJ is worried but Ryder 
insults him and he agrees.  They head to Ocean Docks and CJ sneaks in 
the base and kills some of the guards.  He opens the fence for Ryder to 
enter in the truck.  They load up the truck while fighting the National 
Guard.  Eventually they are full and drive off.  The National Guard 
gives chase but they lose them and drive the truck to Emmet's for 
storage.

After all this heated action CJ decides he needs a break.  He heads to 
Big Smoke's who says that he needs to go pick up a member of the family 
in jail.  They drive to the police department and out comes Jeffrey.  
CJ comments on Jeffrey's look at he argues back that his name is OG 
Loc.  Sweet tells him to go to college and get a real life but OG Loc 
ignores him and wants to head to some gangster's house for payback.  OG 
Loc and CJ go to the house but Sweet and Big Smoke agree to meet up 
later.  When they knock the door OG Loc yells at the person inside who 
says he is OG Loc's lover.  OG Loc states that he took advantage of him 
when he dropped the soap.  The man escapes on his bike and they chase 
him.  Eventually they catch up with him and kill him.  CJ laughs at OG 
Loc who tells to keep it quiet.  CJ drives OG Loc to the Burger Shot in 
Marina and drops him off.  CJ heads back to Big Smoke's house.  

Big Smoke asks CJ to come along as he has to go pick up a Mexican 
cousin, Mary.  When they arrive in East Los Santos CJ figures it out 
that Mary is another term for weed.  Big Smoke asks some Vagos and they 
insult him.  Big Smoke kills one of them with a bat and the other runs.  
CJ and Big Smoke run after him but Big Smoke can't run too far and 
cheers CJ on.  CJ follows after him and manages to kill the Vagos.  Big 
Smoke and CJ head back to Smoke's house separately and meet up.  Big 
Smoke wants to follow a lead that will get the "deep in the game".  
They head over to Union Station and find some Vagos make a run for it 
on top of the train.  They get on a bike and drive alongside the train.  
Big Smoke shoots at the Vagos while CJ avoids the other trains, a 
destroyed car, and some blocks.  Big Smoke kills them and they head 
back to Big Smoke's house.  They agree to meet up later.  

When CJ comes back to Big Smoke's house, Big Smoke needs to run an 
errand and they head out.  When they arrive at the Atrium Big Smoke 
tells CJ to wait outside.  CJ admires a woman until Big Smoke yells and 
CJ runs in.  CJ enters to a shootout between Big Smoke and some 
Russians.  CJ and Smoke kill them and head outside to find more 
Russians that they kill.  They grab a motorcycle and head off.  Big 
Smoke drives as CJ shoots back at some Russians giving chase in cars, 
on bikes, and in a truck.  They go through the waterways and manage to 
kill most of the Russians and then head back to Big Smoke's house.

CJ remembers OG Loc and heads over to the Burger Shot to see how he is.  
CJ finds OG Loc cleaning up some floors and mocks him since OG Loc said 
he was a "Hygiene Technician".  OG Loc says that he needs a sound 
system and heard a great one in a van.  They were heading to the beach 
so CJ heads down there.  He finds the van and gets friendly with the 
owner by showing her some dance moves.  CJ gets in the van, takes off 
with it, and brings it to a lockup.  He heads back to the Burger Shot.  
When he arrives he finds that OG Loc wants him to steal well known 
rapper, Madd Dogg's, rhyme book.  CJ only agrees if it will stop OG Loc 
from singing the garbage he does.  CJ heads to Madd Dogg's mansion in 
Vinewood and sneaks in.  He slowly moves around and kills any guard 
that gets in his way.  CJ grabs the rhyme book and runs out and back to 
the Burger Shot.  When he heads out of the restaurant he gets a call 
from Officer Tenpenny telling him to come see him.  CJ heads back into 
the Burger Shot.

OG Loc is upset.  Madd Dogg's manager is on him for stealing the rhymes 
and CJ is ordered to take care of it.  He grabs the manager's car and 
drives to a location where all the security meet.  The manager gets in 
the car and CJ drives off and losses the security.  CJ drives down to 
the pier and jumps out of the car and sends it into the water since the 
manager can't swim.  When CJ heads back to the Burger Shot to deliver 
the good news he finds OG Loc quitting and leaving.  OG Loc says that 
this violates his parole and he is going back to jail so he is throwing 
a party at his house and gets CJ to dress himself up.  CJ heads to OG 
Loc's house and walks in on OG Loc with some bad singing.  The boys 
decide to go outside and get away from the awful singing of OG Loc.  
Suddenly, another member of the gang comes up on a bike and says that 
the Ballas are heading to Grove Street.  Sweet orders them to block the 
road.  The Ballas arrive and a shootout begins.  They manage to kill 
the Ballas on the street and on the bridge.  They head down an alley 
but the Grove Street men stop them and kill them.  They celebrate the 
victory and all go home to enjoy the night.

The next day CJ heads over to a donut shop where he finds Tenpenny with 
his men.  Tenpenny tells CJ that he needs him to kill a gang banger in 
East Los Santos by burning his house down.  He wants no evidence.  CJ 
grabs some Molotov Cocktails and heads over to the apartment complex.  
He immediately throws the Molotov's in the building he is shot at by 
some Vagos.  He kills them and believes his mission is a success.  
Suddenly he hears the screams of a women in the building.  She is 
upstairs and trapped.  CJ rushes in, grabs a fire extinguisher, and 
finds her.  He leads her out of the building as it collapses.  She says 
her name is Denise Robinson and she lives off of Grove Street.  CJ 
drives her back and they agree to see each other again.  CJ gets a call 
about some drug dealers in Glen Park but heads off to the donut shop to 
see Officer Tenpenny again.  Officer Tenpenny suggests that CJ check 
out a warehouse in Ocean Docks where the Ballas and Russians are 
meeting.  CJ heads over there and is attacked outside the warehouse but 
makes his way in.  CJ fights off the Ballas and Russians in the 
building and chases after the Russian leader.  He catches up to him and 
kills him.  Tenpenny has no more use for him for now.

CJ heads over to the Ammunation that Sweet suggested and picks up some 
weapons.  He heads down to Glen Park and starts up a gang war.  
Eventually, CJ kills all the Ballas and the Grove Street Families take 
over the area.  The drug dealing traitor attempts to escape but CJ runs 
him down and kills him.  CJ heads over to Sweet's house and Sweet wants 
them to show that Grove Street is back and perform a major hit on the 
Ballas at a funeral.  CJ and Sweet grab some men and head over to the 
cemetery.  They enter and CJ chases after the leader, Kane.  CJ kills 
him and they take out the rest of the members there.  CJ and Sweet 
leave the area and return to Grove Street.  

Sweet and CJ know they have put Grove Street on the map with their 
activities.  CJ eventually returns to Sweet's house and meets up with 
Ryder, Big Smoke, and Sweet.  Sweet wants to end the hostility between 
the families and a meeting is set to take place at Jefferson Hotel.  
They drive over and Sweet must go in alone as one member per family is 
allowed.  Suddenly, the LSPD show up with helicopters and SWAT and all 
that to storm the place.  Ryder and Big Smoke want to leave but CJ runs 
in after his brother.  He kills the police in there and finds Sweet.  
They head out and take out a helicopter.  Just as they run around the 
building Ryder and Big Smoke show up.  They jump in and CJ is trusted 
with the shooting.  CJ shoots at the cops following them on bikes, 
cars, and a helicopter.  CJ's gun jams and Big Smoke drives them down a 
small path.  They jump out of the car at the last second to watch it 
fly off on the freeway and cause a huge accident.  They agree to split 
up and meet up later.  

CJ heads to Sweet's and finds Sweet talking with some men.  He states 
that it is time to take back the town and wants everyone to meet him 
under the Mulholland Intersection to battle it out with some Ballas.  
As CJ leaves he gets a call from Cesar who wants CJ to come meet him 
because he has something to show him.  CJ says he needs to go meet up 
with his brother but Cesar insists that it is important.  CJ heads over 
to Cesar and gets in his car.  Cesar tells CJ to watch.  He sees two 
Ballas exit a building and is unimpressed.  Cesar tells him to keep 
watching.  Suddenly, Ryder and Big Smoke come out and they roll out the 
Green Sabre that was seen the night CJ's mom was killed.  Officer 
Tenpenny also walks out.  It appears that Big Smoke has sold the family 
out.  CJ realizes that Sweet is walking into a trap and tells Cesar to 
get Kendl and leave town.  CJ races over to the Mulholland Intersection 
to find a battle going on.  Sweet has been hit.  CJ takes out the 
Ballas until the cops arrive and he surrenders.  Sweet is arrested and 
taken to a hospital prison and CJ is grabbed by Tenpenny and his men.  
CJ gets a bag put over his head and they drive off.

Finally reaching a stop CJ has the bag removed and he is in a rural 
area.  This is Angel Pine.  CJ is informed of Sweet's situation.  CJ is 
upset at Big Smoke and Tenpenny states that Big Smoke has worked for 
him for a long time.  Officer Tenpenny gives CJ a camera and wants him 
to kill a snitch hiding on Mount Chiliad and bring back a photo for 
proof.  They kick CJ out of the car and drive off.  CJ heads up the 
mountain to get the mission over with and focus on his family's status.  
CJ reaches the cabin on the mountain and kills the man along with his 
security.  He heads back down and delivers the pictures to a trailer.  

CJ then receives a call from Cesar and CJ informs him to get Kendl out 
of town now.  Cesar says that he wants payback for what happened to his 
gang, Varrios Los Aztecas, but CJ doesn't care right now.  Cesar agrees 
and then tells CJ to go meet his cousin at a diner in Dillimore.  When 
CJ arrives he finds a woman facing off with some of the men.  They try 
to get near her but she cuts one with her knife.  She asks CJ what he 
wants and then promptly leaves with him.  She states her name is 
Catalina.  She lists a series of places that she wishes to rob.  CJ 
goes for the closest place which is a gas station also in Dillimore.  
They try to rob the gas station but the glass is bullet-proof and the 
doors are locked.  Catalina changes the plan and decides to take the 
tanker.  They grab a truck and hook up the tanker while the gas station 
attendants get in their car and follow.  They take care of the 
attendants and head to Flint County to a truck stop.  Catalina speaks 
with the owner of a truck stop and sells the truck of gas to him.  She 
gives CJ his cut and then leaves.  

CJ gets a call from someone called The Truth.  He is a friend of 
Officer Tenpenny and wants CJ to meet him in Angel Pine.  CJ heads over 
and finds Officer Tenpenny high (as a kite).  Tenpenny introduces CJ to 
The Truth but he isn't there.  Tenpenny is talking with a couch.  He 
then calls Truth in and he meets CJ.  Tenpenny tells CJ that Truth will 
supply him with weed and that CJ will pay him and take it to San 
Fierro.  Tenpenny leaves.  The Truth tells CJ about a survivalist farm 
that has a harvester that he requires.  The Truth wants CJ to steal it.  
CJ heads to the farm and steals it.  He is chased by some of the people 
but he losses them and takes the harvester to The Truth's farm.

CJ receives a call from Cesar that he and Kendl are in Angel Pine.  CJ 
heads over and meets up with them.  CJ is told that Big Smoke is the 
main pusher in Los Santos and that he gets shipments from San Fierro 
twice a week.  CJ says he will look out for them.  CJ leaves and gets a 
call from Catalina wondering where he is.  CJ decides to meet her at 
her house.  When he gets there she holds him at gun point and indicates 
her love for CJ.  They head off to a bank in order to rob it.  Once 
they enter CJ is in charge of watching the people while Catalina gets 
the money.  One of them manages to hit the alarm.  CJ grabs the money 
from the ATMs and Catalina grabs the money she gets.  They head out the 
back of the building and find the cops waiting for them.  CJ and 
Catalina make their way through the alley and kill the police.  They 
steal 2 police bikes and drive off with the police chasing them.  
Catalina gets ahead of CJ and gets knocked off her bike by a police 
cruiser.  CJ manages to get there and take out the cops and she hoops 
on CJ's bike.  They head to Catalina's hideout.  CJ takes his cut and 
after leaving Catalina's house he receives a call from Cesar about 
illegal street racers who come out to the rural areas to avoid the 
cops.  Cesar tells CJ to head over when he gets a chance.  CJ then 
decides to finish up everything with Catalina first.

Upon heading back to Catalina's, CJ is brought inside and "punished" 
for not keeping in touch with her.  Afterwards they head to Blueberry 
to rob a liquor store.  When they arrive they find that 4 armed men 
have already robbed the store.  Catalina kills one and they give chase 
on his ATV.  They catch up with the other men and kill them.  They grab 
the money and CJ takes Catalina back to her place.  CJ returns a while 
later after a call from Catalina ordering him to be there.  Catalina 
yells at him for not being loyal and says she wants their relationship 
to be business from now on.  They head out to Montgomery to a betting 
shop.  When they arrive CJ uses some explosives to blow open the safe 
and grab the money.  They grab a car and lose the cops, then head back 
to Catalina's house where CJ drops her off.

CJ has acquired himself a good amount of money and grabs himself a fast 
car.  CJ heads over to Montgomery and arrives at the race line.  He is 
introduced to an Asian man named Wu Zi Mu.  He prefers to be called 
Woozie.  They get in their cars and the race starts.  CJ manages to 
beat the competition.  After the race Woozie congratulates CJ and gives 
him his business card in case CJ is in San Fierro sometime.  Everyone 
leaves the area except for CJ.  He is confronted by Catalina.  She 
breaks up with CJ and introduced her new man.  This is Claude (from GTA 
3).  She challenges CJ to a race for pink slips.  CJ ends up winning 
the race.  Catalina, furious, hands over the deed to a garage in San 
Fierro.  She explains that Claude was "satisfying her" while he raced 
and that is why he lost.  Catalina and Claude head off to Liberty City.

CJ now decides that he needs to head to San Fierro but receives a call 
from The Truth that Tenpenny's stuff is ready and he should come pick 
it up.  CJ decides to go pick up Tenpenny's drugs and head to San 
Fierro, killing two birds with one stone.  He arrives at The Truth's 
farm and hands over the money to pay for the drugs.  CJ inspects the 
van which is completely full.  Suddenly, they hear a helicopter over 
them.  The cops have been tipped off about The Truth's pot farm.  The 
Truth hands CJ a flamethrower and they burn all the plants.  The Truth 
hands CJ a rocket launcher and he takes out the helicopter.  They drive 
to CJ's newly acquired garage in San Fierro.  Entering it, CJ feels 
duped by Catalina as the place is a dump.  Kendl and Cesar arrive 
shortly and Kendl calms CJ down.  They need some mechanics.  

The Truth informs CJ of some friends and they go and pick them up.  
During these trips The Truth informs CJ to go to certain locations in 
the city.  When he does he finds a dark coloured van leaving.  The 
Truth doesn't explain what it is (some believe that these are Mike 
Toreno's trucks).  After CJ brings the men back to his garage he gets a 
call from Zero.  It appears that Zero's landlord is looking to sell 
them shop so CJ heads over and buys the building.  CJ helps Zero fight 
off his childhood rival, Berkley, and drive him out of town.

A while later, CJ heads back to the garage and receives a call from 
Officer Tenpenny.  He wants CJ to plant some weed in a car to frame him 
and then call the cops.  CJ is unsure about snitching on someone but 
when Tenpenny informs CJ that it is a DA (District Attorney) CJ is more 
than willing.  He drives over to Vank Hoff Hotel and beats up a valet 
for his uniform.  When the DA arrives CJ takes his car to the garage 
and plants the drugs.  He heads back to the hotel and drives it into 
the parking lot underground.  CJ hurries out as a valet comes in to 
pick up the car.  CJ reports the DA and when he gets his car the cops 
arrive and arrest him.

Arriving back at the garage he finds Kendl upset about the nearby 
construction workers.  They have been treating her like a slut.  Cesar 
wants to kill them but CJ says he will take care of it.  So CJ heads to 
the site and grabs a Dozer.  He destroys 6 portable buildings and the 
Foreman comes out of a Porta Potty.  The Foreman sees the destruction 
and runs back in.  CJ drives into the Porta Potty and pushes it into a 
hole.  He gets in the cement truck and buries the Foreman.  CJ heads 
back to the garage.  

CJ immediately receives a call from Cesar who is following a Balla car 
heading towards San Fierro for drugs.  CJ heads out to meet with Cesar.  
He meets up with Cesar and they head over to Angel Pine where the 
meeting is.  They get on top of a nearby building and watch some cars 
pull up.  Ryder is the first to arrive as he represents Big Smoke.  
Another car pulls up and a guy named T-Bone Mendez comes out.  He is 
the leader of the San Fierro Rifa.  The next car to pull up contains a 
man wearing a business suit.  They don't know him yet but he is Mike 
Toreno.  Next is a man who looks like a pimp.  He is Jizzy B.  They are 
all part of a group called the Loco Syndicate who sell drugs primarily 
to Big Smoke in Los Santos.  Ryder is a representative for Big Smoke.  
CJ and Cesar head away from the meeting, split up, and agree to meeting 
back at the garage.

CJ arrives back and Woozie shows up.  He helps CJ identify the men he 
photographed.  Woozie informs CJ that Jizzy B. helps to set up the 
deals and acts as a middleman.  CJ decides he will enter the syndicate 
from this point.  CJ heads over to Jizzy's Pleasure Dome under the Gant 
Bridge.  Upon arriving he introduces himself to Jizzy by stating that 
he is new in town and would like some work.  After buttering Jizzy up, 
CJ is tasked with finding out who is killing Jizzy's girls.  CJ leaves 
and Jizzy allows him to take Jizzy's car.  CJ drives around and kills 
some thugs that are beating up his women.  He also kills a prostitute 
and her 'sugar daddy' as she is trying to leave prostitution forever.  
Once CJ does all this, Jizzy calls him and says he can keep the car as 
an APB has been posted on it.

CJ is now in the syndicate and can start affecting them and finding out 
more information.  CJ heads back to the Pleasure Dome and is introduced 
to T-Bone Mendez.  T-Bone tasks CJ with getting to an ambushed van and 
getting back all the stolen merchandise.  CJ drives over and gives 
chase on 4 bikers that have stolen the stuff inside.  He manages to 
chase them all down and get back the merchandise.  CJ heads back to the 
Pleasure Dome and drops them off.  When he meets back with Jizzy and T-
Bone, T-Bone gets a call from Mike Toreno who is in another ambushed 
van and is trapped.  T-Bone and CJ head out in search of Mike.  Mike is 
still on the phone and he directs them to where he is.  CJ ends up at 
the airport and they rescue Mike who is suspicious of CJ but allows him 
to get them out of there.  CJ safely drives them back to the Pleasure 
Domes.

Sometime later CJ arrives back at the Pleasure Dome and Jizzy instructs 
him to meet his business associate.  CJ heads to Xoomer Gas Station and 
gets in a car.  After T-Bone and Mike Toreno question him they say that 
CJ has to ensure the safety of a shipment. CJ grabs a bike and leads 
the van to a factory.  This is the Loco Syndicate's drug factory which 
CJ will need to take out eventually.  After completing this mission CJ 
heads back to the garage and is met by Tenpenny and Pulaski.  They need 
you to take care of a reporter and a snitch that is supplying the 
information.  The reporter boards a train headed for Los Santos and CJ 
follows it.  The reporter meets up with his informant on a pier and CJ 
kills them both.  Another job done for Tenpenny.  CJ heads back to San 
Fierro.

Now it is time for CJ to make his move.  He must kill Jizzy to get his 
phone and finds out about the drug supply.  CJ heads to the Pleasure 
Dome at night and manages to kill Jizzy B. in a rundown.  CJ finds that 
a deal is going to happen at Pier 69.  CJ arrives there and meets Cesar 
on top of a building.  Woozie has agreed to supply some men for this.  
CJ spots the men and begins to snipe any Rifa or Balla that they meet.  
T-Bone Mendez and Ryder pull up and don't see the bodies as they are on 
the roof.  Toreno flies in on a helicopter and notices the bodies so he 
takes off.  The Ballas throw some smoke grenades as CJ and Cesar storm 
the area.  They kill T-Bone and Ryder heads off on a boat.  CJ follows 
and manages to kill Ryder.  He is deeply upset at having to kill his 
long-time friend.

Cesar speaks with CJ about how he had to kill Ryder.  CJ then receives 
a call from Woozie who informs him that Toreno is at a helipad downtown 
and loading up some boxes onto a helicopter.  He is preparing to leave.  
CJ heads over immediately, kills the men there, and chases the 
helicopter.  He rockets the helicopter and it explodes, killing Mike 
Toreno (or so he thinks).

CJ now decides that he should meet up with Woozie and help him out 
after everything he has done for CJ.  CJ enters Woozie's betting shop 
apartment and meets Woozie.  He asks CJ to come along as he shows CJ 
how they take care of business.  They leave the apartment and head 
around the corner to the Blood Feather Triads.  Woozie informs CJ that 
a Vietnamese gang has been giving them trouble and they want to unify 
the Triad gangs to help protect them.  When they arrive at the spot 
they find the Blood Feather Triads have all been wiped out except for 1 
man who informs them it was the Vietnamese gang who did this.  Just 
then, the gang shows up to finish the job.  CJ fights them off as 
Woozie seems to have trouble finding his way.  They head back to 
Woozie's apartment and CJ drops him off.

The next day, CJ arrives at Woozie's apartment and is introduced to Ran 
Fa Li, the leader of the Red Gecko Tong.  CJ is informed that the 
Vietnamese gang is called the Da Nang Boys.  Ran Fa Li needs a package 
retrieved from the airport and Woozie suggests CJ do it.  So CJ heads 
over to the airport and grabs the package but the Da Nang Boys attack 
him.  CJ heads out of the airport, loses them, and drops the package 
off at Pier 69.  When he heads back to Woozie's apartment he finds that 
Ran Fa Li is now trapped since the Da Nang Boys are watching the 
building.  CJ offers to be a decoy and lead them off.  CJ drives an old 
SUV out to the rural areas and leads them around.  Eventually, they 
catch up the CJ and see who it is and heads back to the apartment but 
they are too late.  Ran Fa Li is safe.

CJ goes back to Woozie's apartment to check on him and Woozie informs 
CJ that he wants CJ to swim out to a Da Nang Boy in the harbour and 
plant a bug on it so they can listen in on radio discussions.  CJ heads 
over and avoids Da Nang Boys security around the area and plants the 
bug on the boat.  CJ swims back to shore.  When he heads back to 
Woozie's place, some time later, Woozie informs him that the Da Nang 
Boys are making a full move to San Fierro and that is why they have 
been more aggressive.  CJ agrees to stop their ship coming in.  CJ gets 
in a helicopter with some of Woozie's men and they fly to the ship.  
They helicopter is shot down, however, by a rocket.  CJ is the only one 
to survive and ends up in the water.  He gets on the boat and kills 
everyone inside.  CJ frees some prisoners in a crate and is informed 
that the leader of the Da Nang Boys, Snakehead, is on the bridge.  CJ 
heads up and kills Snakehead with a sword.  CJ leaves the ship and has 
ended the Da Nang Boys.

Upon speaking with Woozie again they agree to destroy the Loco 
Syndicate's drug factory and end them for good.  CJ grabs a car that is 
rigged by one of Woozie's men and takes it to the factory.  CJ breaks 
into the area and drives the car nears some tanks.  He sets the timer 
and everyone rushes out of the building.  It explodes and CJ escapes.  
This has ended the Loco Syndicate and Big Smoke's supply of drugs from 
San Fierro.  CJ receives a call shortly after by someone masking their 
voice.  They want CJ to come out to their ranch in the desert as they 
have information on Sweet.

CJ, not knowing what to make of this, heads out to the desert to hear 
this person's information.  When he arrives at the ranch, CJ must prove 
his driving skills in a monster truck. He does and heads back to the 
ranch.  As he sits there, CJ is snuck up on by Mike Toreno who CJ 
thought was dead.  Toreno tells CJ that he is a government agent and 
needs CJ to perform some jobs for him.  Toreno wants CJ to call up 
Cesar and commandeer a truck in San Fierro.  Cesar arrives and it 
appears he was already called by CJ (Toreno using some sort of voice 
masking/ changing device).  They head onto the freeway and chase down 
the truck.  Cesar jumps on, kicks the driver out, and lets CJ get in.  
CJ drives it to the designated location for Toreno.  Afterwards, CJ 
heads back to Toreno's house to get the information about his brother.  

Toreno tells CJ that Sweet is safe and Toreno will keep it that way as 
long as CJ helps him.  So Toreno now wants CJ to go and retrieve a 
package for him in the desert.  CJ drives out to El Castillo del Diablo 
and drops a flare so that a helicopter can come by and drop off the 
package.  As the helicopter approaches some black helicopters begin to 
fly around and shoot at the helicopter.  CJ takes them down and the 
package is dropped off for CJ.  He grabs it and takes it back to 
Toreno's ranch.  Entering Toreno's ranch again he is now instructed by 
Mike to go to Verdant Meadows Aircraft Graveyard and purchase it for 
$1.  If they don't accept then Toreno instructs CJ to kill the owners.  
So CJ heads over to the aircraft graveyard and purchases it.  He 
decides to do it legitimately and buys it for $80,000.  Toreno calls 
him immediately and informs CJ that he will need to learn how to fly 
for the next series of tasks Toreno has lined up for him.  CJ go 
through Toreno's training with helicopters, planes, and parachutes and 
passes.

CJ has completed the flying school and Toreno quickly tasks CJ with 
flying supplies to his friend in Angel Pine.  CJ completes this task 
while staying below the radar level so no one gets suspicious.  But 
when CJ returns to the graveyard he finds government officials loading 
up a cargo plane.  CJ thinks they are Toreno's men but Toreno shows up 
behind him and states that they are from another group.  Toreno wants 
CJ to get on that plane and stop the agents.  SO CJ grabs a bike and 
drives into the pane as it takes off.  Killing everyone inside, CJ sets 
a bomb and then parachutes out.  He blows the plane up and then sails 
back down to Verdant Meadows.

A short while later The Truth shows up and wants CJ to come with him.  
CJ agrees and they head out to the middle of the desert which isn't 
listed on any map.  They arrive and The Truth wants CJ to find a 'black 
project' and steal it.  CJ finds a military base located here and heads 
down into the facilities under ground.  He heads further down as alarms 
go off around him.  CJ finds the 'black project' being developed and it 
is a jetpack.  CJ grabs the pack and heads out of the base and arrives 
at the graveyard to meet The Truth.  Truth thanks CJ and takes the 
jetpack.  When The Truth comes back to Verdant Meadows he flies the 
jetpack poorly and crashes.  Truth says he can't handle the jetpack and 
wants CJ to use it to fly to a train and steal "whatever they least 
want you to get".  CJ heads over and kills the soldiers on the train.  
He finds a weird container of green stuff and takes it back to Truth.  
The Truth is amazed by it and tells CJ he can keep the jetpack.  The 
Truth leaves to aircraft graveyard.

Soon after this, CJ is invited by Woozie out to Las Venturas to visit 
Woozie's new casino, The Four Dragons Casino.  CJ heads east to Las 
Venturas.  Upon arriving he finds a frustrated Woozie who is trying to 
start up a Triad casino in a Mafia run town.  They have captured 
someone trying to destroy their equipment and CJ says he can make the 
man talk about who he's working for.  Woozie's men tie the man to the 
front of a car and CJ gets in.  He drives the car along the strip and 
scares the man enough to say that he works for the Sindacco's, one of 
the Mafia families that owns Caligula's Casino.  CJ drives him back to 
the casino and goes and meets with Woozie.  They decide that the best 
way to hurt Caligula's Casino is to rob it.  CJ informs Woozie that 
they need some explosives first and Woozie tells him to go to the 
quarry.  CJ arrives there and heads down to the bottom.  He grabs the 
dynamite as they are preparing to blow it up.  The workers run after CJ 
but he heads out of the quarry and delivers the dynamite to a waiting 
car.

When CJ arrives back at the casino he talks with Woozie.  An employee 
walks in with a fake chip and they agree that the Sindacco's are using 
their plastic factory to produce the chips.  CJ decides to go visit the 
plastic factory.  He drives over and kills the Sindaccos inside.  CJ 
also manages to destroy the plastic machines and heads out before 
anymore Sindaccos arrive.  As CJ makes his way back to the casino he is 
called by The Truth who needs CJ's help.  It appears that The Truth 
took some guys out for a safari and lost them.  So CJ heads out into 
the desert to the last place The Truth remembers them being and finds 
Paulie and Maccer.  They need to go to a snake farm to find the rest of 
the band.  But when they get there they are confronted by the owners 
who say that Maccer took advantage of their pig.  They escape the 
owners and head to their friend Rosie's casino.  Arriving at Caligula's 
Casino, CJ enjoys the possibility that he can observe the casino from 
inside without any suspicion.  They head up and meet Ken Rosenburg who 
manages the casino and CJ is introduced to him.  

After CJ leaves he now decides to start focusing on the plans for heist 
on Caligula's Casino.  CJ first steals the architectural plans for the 
building and then gets the security card of a croupier for the casino.  
Each time he meets with Woozie, more and more people are introduced to 
the plan much to CJ's disapproval.  Next, CJ heads to the dam to set 
explosives so they can shut down the power to Las Venturas during the 
heist.  Afterwards, CJ and some of Woozie's men steal cop cars and an 
armoured van in order to pull off the heist.  They are now prepared but 
CJ needs to scope the place out some more so he heads back to 
Caligula's Casino to visit Rosie, Paulie, and Maccer.

Upon arrival he is informed by Rosie that Johnny Sindacco needs to be 
moved from the hospital because the Forelli's are coming to kill him.  
Johnny is in a shock induced coma (caused by CJ's interrogation) and 
must be helped.  CJ heads to the hospital and finds that Johnny has 
already been moved.  The Forelli's have got him.  CJ finds the 
ambulance that took him and steals it.  He drives back to the Sindacco 
factory and Johnny is safe.  When CJ gets back to the casino he finds 
Rosie freaking out.  CJ tells him to take charge and inform everyone 
who is the boss.  Rosie and CJ head to the Sindacco factory and Rosie 
wants CJ to come with him to meet Johnny.  CJ is reluctant as he knows 
Johnny will remember him.  Sure enough, Johnny sees CJ and suffers a 
heart attack and dies.  The Sindaccos attack CJ and Rosie but CJ kills 
all of them in the factory and they leave.  CJ drives Rosie back to the 
casino.  

When CJ goes to the Four Dragons Casino he finalizes the ownership 
agreement of the casino with Woozie and Ran Fa Li.  He also gets a call 
from Rosie who informs CJ that Salvatore Leone has come to the casino 
and taken it over.  CJ heads over to meet up with Rosie.  When he 
arrives in the offices CJ meets Salvatore who is getting friendly with 
a waitress named Maria (yes, that Maria).  He states that in Liberty 
City, CJ worked with Salvatore's son Joey.  Salvatore likes that and 
wants CJ to kill some Forelli assassins flying in from Liberty City.  
CJ heads to the airport and takes his plane north.  He finds the 
Forelli plane and gets over it.  CJ jumps from one plane to the other 
and kills all the Forelli's inside.  CJ flies the plane back to Las 
Venturas.  Upon leaving the airport, CJ hears about some commotion by 
the Royal Casino.  He heads over to find Madd Dogg, the rapper CJ stole 
everything from, drunk and ready to jump off the top of the building.  
CJ grabs a truck with a bed full of empty boxes and manages to catch 
Madd Dogg.  He takes Madd Dogg to a rehab centre and they agree to talk 
later.

CJ now has to go visit Tenpenny and Pulaski who are in Las Venturas.  
He talks with them and Tenpenny wants CJ to get him a dossier.  CJ 
heads to Aldea Malvada and attacks a group of FBI agents.  CJ kills 
them and steals the dossier.  CJ gets a call from Tenpenny to meet him 
out in the desert to give him the dossier you got.  CJ heads over and 
feels uneasy about the remote location.  He arrives and hands the files 
to Tenpenny.  Tenpenny then hits Hernandez with a shovel in the head as 
Hernandez has been snitching on him.  Tenpenny leaves Pulaski to watch 
over as CJ digs a grave for two.  Just as he finishes Hernandez gets up 
and attacks Pulaski.  CJ escapes but Hernandez is shot to death.  
Pulaski now makes a run for it but CJ gives chase.  Pulaski yells out 
insults about CJ's family to piss him off but CJ manages to catch up 
with him and finish Pulaski off.  Tenpenny is left on his own now as 
Pulaski and Hernandez are dead but that doesn't matter as CJ has 
cleaned up most of the evidence against Tenpenny.

CJ receives a call from ken to return to Caligula's Casino.  CJ heads 
over and finds Salvatore who wants CJ to perform a hit in Liberty City.  
CJ recruits Paulie, Maccer, and Rosie.  When they leave the casino he 
tells them to get out of Las Venturas and he will meet up with them 
later.  CJ heads for the airport and flies to Liberty City.  He arrives 
in Liberty and heads to St. Mark's Bistro in Portland.  CJ kills the 
men in the restaurant and flies back to Las Venturas.  When he arrives 
he gets a call from Sweet who is very depressed and has almost given up 
on ever getting out.  CJ then gets a call from Salvatore informing them 
to stay away from each other for awhile.  Lastly, CJ receives a call 
from Woozie asking him if the heist is still on.  CJ says that they are 
clear to go and with that he heads to the casino to start the heist.  
CJ drives to Caligula's Casino in a croupier outfit and heads 
downstairs to the loading bays.  He raises the door and the truck with 
bikes come in.  They fight off mafia men and get the cash.  Heading out 
of the building they avoid the cops and successfully get away with the 
money.  Following the success, CJ gets a call from Salvatore who 
promises to find him and kill him for what he did.

After the heist, CJ heads back to the Four Dragons Casino and meets up 
with Madd Dogg.  He wants his house back but he sold it to a dealer for 
some drugs.  CJ takes some of Woozie's men and agree to get it back.  
CJ and the men get in a plane and fly over the mansion.  They parachute 
out and land on the roof, confronted by Vagos members.  Killing this 
threat, more men come down and they proceed inside.  CJ finds the drug 
dealer, Big Poppa, and chases him.  He eventually kills Big Poppa and 
reclaims the home.  After settling into the house, Toreno shows up and 
needs CJ's help.  Toreno wants CJ to get in the aircraft carrier in San 
Fierro bay and steal a jet.  CJ swims in, disables the SAMs (Surface to 
Air Missiles) and steals the jet.  He is now instructed with destroying 
some spy ships.  CJ flies over and blows them up.  CJ now wants to know 
where Toreno wants the jet and Toreno ignores the question and pretends 
he doesn't know anything about the jet.  CJ decides to store it at 
Verdant Meadows for future use.  

CJ gets back to Madd Dogg's house to meet up with everyone.  Toreno 
shows up again and CJ pulls a gun on him.  Toreno says he has one last 
task and then he is free.  Toreno tells CJ to pick up the phone and 
Sweet is on the other line.  He is being freed and doesn't know why.  
Toreno says that he only wants CJ to go pick up his brother.  So CJ 
heads to the police station and picks up Sweet.  CJ proudly tells Sweet 
about all his new businesses but Sweet is upset he has left the hood to 
rot.  CJ drives Sweet over to show Sweet how bad the hood is.  They 
arrive and find drug dealers all around and people breaking into the 
houses and stealing stuff.  CJ is ordered to clean the neighbourhood 
up.  CJ kills the drug dealers and then reclaims the territory from the 
Ballas.  CJ now starts gathering more territory again and providing the 
Grove Street Families with a nice section of the city to work with.

CJ goes back to the mansion and finds Madd Dogg watching OG Loc.  He 
realizes that OG Loc's rhymes are his that were stolen (CJ was the one 
who stole them).  CJ and Madd Dogg agree to go break up his party and 
get the book back.  When they arrive, OG Loc takes off and they chase 
him.  He gets to his recording studio and Madd Dogg gets his rhymes 
book back.  OG Loc is fired by the studio.  CJ agrees to meet up with 
Madd Dogg later and heads to Grove Street.  He walks in on Sweet about 
to be given some drugs by a whore.  CJ gets her away from Sweet who 
states that he just wanted to know what everyone is going crazy for.  
The whore says that B Dup won't like this and CJ says he'll take care 
of B Dup right now.  CJ drives over to B Dup's apartment but finds he 
has moved to Glen Park.  CJ heads over there and kills the Ballas.  He 
and Sweet confront B Dup who attempts to get Big Bear to take care of 
them.  Big Bear denounces B Dup and joins the Grove Street again.  They 
leave.

When they meet up Sweet insults CJ for forgetting where he came from 
and they head over to Idlewood to claim more territory.  They are 
successful and head back.  Awhile later they all meet at Madd Dogg's 
mansion.  Watching the TV they find that Tenpenny has been caught and 
is facing charges.  They watch the court proceedings and then it is 
announced that all charges are being dropped do to a lack of evidence 
(thanks to CJ's work).  Unfortunately, it appears that Tenpenny has 
upset a lot of people as the entire city begins to riot.  CJ and Sweet 
head to Grove Street and secure the hood.  Cesar arrives later and 
needs CJ's help to get back Varrios Los Aztecas' territory.  CJ rejects 
at first saying that he has to help his brother but Sweet tells CJ to 
go help him.  CJ grabs some Grove Street members and heads over to 
Unity Station with them and Cesar.  They meet with Cesar's friends and 
storm the apartment complexes.  They head through and kill all the 
Vagos there.  Heading deeper they find more Vagos and kill them.  Cesar 
thanks CJ and secures the area while CJ heads out.  

Sweet calls CJ and tells him they have found where Big Smoke is hiding.  
CJ drives to Sweet's house and picks him up.  They head over to East 
Los Santos to an apartment complex.  CJ says he must do this alone for 
Sweet, Brian, and the whole family.  Sweet agrees and wishes him luck.  
CJ grabs a SWAT tank and rams the front of the building for access.  
Heading up the stairs he goes through the drug factory, the lounge, a 
security area, and arrives at Big Smoke's room on the 4th floor.  Big 
Smoke is playing video games and when confronted by CJ he says that he 
wants to be remembered and that is why he did it.  Big Smoke pulls a 
gun on CJ and they exchange fire.  CJ manages to kill Big Smoke and 
then sits and feels remorse for what he did.  Tenpenny comes up behind 
him and gets him to load a briefcase with money.  Tenpenny says that he 
merely used Big Smoke and now has some new young officers with him that 
he needs to turn to his side.  CJ tricks Tenpenny and ducks behind a 
couch.  Tenpenny runs off and destroys some of the equipment downstairs 
to set the building on fire.  CJ heads out to find Tenpenny drive off 
in a fire truck and Sweet jump on.  CJ follows close behind and catches 
Sweet when he falls off.  They switch seats and CJ fights off the 
police as they chase Tenpenny.  Tenpenny eventually drives the truck 
off a bridge and lands in Grove Street.    Tenpenny crawls out dying 
and insults CJ.  CJ is about to shoot Tenpenny but is stopped as he 
will just die from the accident.  The Truth informs CJ that he beat the 
system and they all head inside.  CJ looks at Tenpenny one last time 
and says, "See you around............officer".  

CJ and the others go to his mom's house and celebrate.  Madd Dogg walks 
in and announces he has got his first gold record.  CJ heads out of the 
house to go check out the neighbourhood.

E8. 1998

The events of GTA Liberty City Stories

After 4 long years, Toni Cipriani has returned to Liberty City.  He 
killed a made man but is back now.  He arrives in Portland on a bus and 
gets off.  Toni makes a quick call and gets in a taxi.  He arrives at 
Salvatore Leone's mansion and finds Salvatore with Vincenzo or 'Luck' 
as Salvatore calls him.  It appears that Vincenzo is second in command 
now as he has moved up the ladder as Toni has been away.  Salvatore 
wants Toni to work for Vincenzo but Toni disagrees and is angry to be 
put under Vincenzo after all he did.  Salvatore asks Toni if he 
questions his authority and Toni retracts his comments.  Vincenzo and 
Toni head out to show Toni his new place that Vincenzo got him.  They 
head over and then Vincenzo wants Toni to drive him to his place in 
Atlantic Quays.  Toni does so and Vincenzo tells him to come by later.

Toni ends up driving around town and getting used to Liberty City again 
and then heads to Vincenzo's place the next day.  Toni doesn't give 
Vincenzo any respect as he is young and cocky and Toni should be giving 
him orders.  When Toni arrives Vincenzo orders him to go find out what 
is wrong with one of his dealers.  He is bringing nothing in.  Toni 
meets the dealer and he says that he is sick and will work tomorrow.  
Toni insists that he works now and takes the dealer to Chinatown.  The 
dealer says that the Sindacco Family is dealing on Leone turf but Toni 
doesn't believe him.  He drops the dealer off and heads back to 
Vincenzo's.  It appears that the dealer Toni dropped off has been 
killed by the Sindacco's he warned Toni about.  Toni heads around town 
and takes out the Sindacco dealers for this and ends their operations.

Toni heads back to Vincenzo's place and is ordered to kill a Sindacco 
leader and take his car.  Toni heads over to the construction site in 
Hepburn Heights and kills all the Sindaccos there.  Toni grabs the 
leader's car and resprays it.  A man named JD calls and says for Toni 
to keep the car as a down payment for the money he owes Toni.  Toni 
doesn't mind keeping the car as it is a Hellenbacht GT (a fast car in 
the GTA world).  So, Toni heads back to Vincenzo's and finds him irate.  
Apparently, some of his men were robbing a gas station and got pinned 
down by the police.  Vincenzo demands that Toni goes and grabs the men.  
He heads over to the gas station and breaks through the police 
barricades.  He grabs the three men and escapes with them and loses the 
police.  Toni takes the men back to Vincenzo's.

When Toni arrives Vincenzo wants him to grab a car for him.  It has 
drugs in it and wants Toni to get it first before the cops know about 
it.  Toni heads over to the docks area and gets in the car.  As soon as 
he does the cops converge on him.  Vincenzo has set Toni up.  Toni 
drives off and gets the car resprayed to avoid cop attention.  Toni 
calls up Vincenzo and yells but Vincenzo doesn't really care and Toni 
decides to quit Vincenzo's employ.  Toni takes Vincenzo's car to the 
crushers as punishment.  Toni is now going to do his own thing for the 
Leone Family as he heads to Paulie's Revue Bar to talk with JD O'Toole.

Toni knocks on the back entrance door and JD walks out in a gimp suit 
with holes for the nipples and butt cheeks (that is the scariest thing 
in the GTA universe).  Toni demands his money but JD doesn't have it.  
He offers to go with Toni to all his girls and pick it up from them.  
JD changes and they drive around town and grab the cash from the women.  
Toni drives JD back to his apartment and agrees to see him later.  When 
Toni returns he finds a panicking JD.  The cops are coming to raid the 
place and Salvatore is inside.  Toni grabs a car and drives Salvatore 
away from the bar and home.  Salvatore wants Toni to come back later.  
Toni first heads back to Paulie's Revue Bar.  JD informs Toni that the 
Sindacco's are looking to destroy the Leone casino in Portland.  Toni 
heads over and protects the bar from the Sindacco men.

Toni goes back to Paulie's Revue Bar and JD now suggests that he pays 
the Sindaccos back for what they tried to do.  Toni takes a car to 8-
Ball's and gets it rigged.  He brings it to the Sindacco casino and 
blows the car up which destroys the Sindacco casino.  Afterwards, Toni 
receives a call from his mother.  She demands to see him so Toni heads 
over to here cafe.  Ma Cipriani begins to insult Toni and ask him why 
he isn't like Giovanni Casa.  Toni suggests that he is a pervert but 
she denies it.  So Toni decides to tail Casa and take pictures of him 
in his perverted activities.  Toni parks in Chinatown and follows Casa 
as he picks up 2 hookers and goes to Callahan Point.  The hookers get 
out of the car and Casa changes into a big baby costume.  Toni takes a 
picture as the hookers and Casa run off.  Toni delivers the pictures to 
his mom for her to see.

Before she looks at them Toni's mom wishes Toni wasn't so afraid of 
Triads.  He decides to prove himself and heads to Chinatown and kills 
two groups of Triads.  When Toni heads back his mom is complaining 
about a guy named Sucho.  She wants Toni to beat him in a race and then 
kill him.  So Toni heads to the start of the race and gets in position.  
He wins the race and then chases Sucho down and kills him.  He'll do 
anything to make his mom happy.  So Toni heads back to his mom's 
restaurant and she begins to yell at him and call him a pervert for 
taking the pictures of Casa.  Toni is furious and decides that Casa 
needs to go.  Toni heads over to Casa's deli and picks him up.  Casa 
questions where they are going but Toni says nothing.  Toni drives them 
to the Sawmill in Atlantic Quays and they enter it.  Toni then tells 
Casa that it is over and grabs an axe.  Toni chases Casa and kills him.  
Toni uses the axe to chop Casa's body up and then returns to Casa's 
deli and sells the meat to the clerk there who worries about Casa 
finding out (I doubt it since the meat is Casa).

Toni is now free of the shadow of Casa.  He returns to the restaurant 
and his mom is upset.  She whispers something on the phone about Toni 
being there and then announces that she has called a hit on Toni.  Ma 
runs out of the restaurant and leaves in a car as the hitmen show up.  
Toni takes care of them all (at this point the hitmen will randomly 
attack the player in the game at any time).  Toni now only has one 
place to go....Salvatore's.  So he heads up and finds Salvatore who 
wants Toni to take some money to Jane Hopper, the head of the union 
that is striking down on the ports.  Toni proceeds down and finds Ms. 
Hopper.  He is informed that she can't be bought and is then surrounded 
by union workers.  Toni manages to escape this gang beating and leaves 
the docks.  He returns to Salvatore's place to inform him of the 
situation.  Salvatore suggests that Toni picks up some whores from 
around town and supply them to the union workers to get them on the 
Leone side.  Toni brings 6 of them over and announces who is supplying 
the girls to help the workers change their minds.

Toni has influenced the union workers now but the Leone's can't get 
their shipments yet.  Toni returns to Salvatore's house and is orders 
to go and beat up the union leaders to help them change their minds 
(the leaders below Ms. Hopper).  So Toni heads around town and finds 
the leader.  He beats the crap out of all three of them and they 
promptly change their opinion.  When Toni heads back, Salvatore has a 
plan to end this problem.  Toni is ordered to head to the radio station 
building and beat up Ms. Hopper's limo driver.  Then he will take Ms. 
Hopper on a ride to change her mind.  So Toni heads out and does just 
that.  Ms. Hopper agrees to Salvatore's terms.

During the meetings with Salvatore, Toni has met up with Salvatore's 
wife, Maria, again.  Maria wanted Toni to meet her at her apartment but 
Toni has been busy with activities for Salvatore.  Now that Toni's time 
is freed up he heads over and finds Maria wants to go shopping.  Toni 
agrees to take her only because she is Salvatore's girl.  They heads 
out but Maria steals from every store she goes into and Toni losses the 
police and drives her home.  When he returns to her apartment she needs 
him to drive her to go get some drugs.  When they arrive at the dealers 
in Chinatown she is kidnapped by them.  Toni rams their car several 
times until they get out and Toni kills them.  Maria is thankful for 
Toni's help but Toni is growing annoyed with her.  He drives her home.  
But it isn't long before Maria needs Toni again.  Toni returns to her 
apartment and finds a letter.  It's from Maria and states that she has 
put herself up as a prize in a bike race.  Toni must rescue her so he 
grabs a bike and heads for the race.  Toni manages to win and save 
Maria but she ends up running off with some biker.

Toni is tired of covering up for Maria.  But she needs him once again 
and he heads to her apartment for Salvatore's sake.  When he arrives he 
finds Maria bloody and bruised.  He demands to know who did it and she 
says it was Wayne, the biker she ran off with at the end of the race.  
Toni storms out and we get the famous line in all the ads, "I love you 
Toni Cipriani!".  Toni heads into Chinatown and finds Wayne with his 
biker friends.  Wayne states that Maria is a slut and deserved to 
beating.  Toni goes for Wayne but he rides off on his bike.  Toni 
follows on a bike and kills Wayne.  He heads back to Maria's to tell 
her the news and finds her high as a kite.  She has overdosed on drugs 
and needs a counter drug called ZAP to balance it out.  Toni asks her 
where she left this ZAP but she can't remember.  They head out to 
various locations and each time she says it is somewhere else.  She 
finally remembers that it's at Salvatore's place and they head there 
and he drops Maria off.

As Maria gets fixed up with her ZAP, Toni meets with Salvatore.  
Salvatore wants Toni to pick up some "stuff" at the docks for him.  
Toni grabs some men and heads over to meet with Miguel and some 
Columbian Cartel members.  As the deal is happening some cops arrive 
and Toni yells at the Columbians for bringing them.  A shootout happens 
between the three sides.  Toni manages to get in the Patriot with the 
stuff and drives off.  He loses the cops and drops it off and a 
predetermined location.  Toni gets a call from JD who tells him to 
hurry over to Paulie's Revue Bar.

So Toni heads over and finds JD in a panic.  He mumbles about the FBI 
and cops and such until Toni gets it out of him.  The Sindaccos have 
kidnapped Salvatore.  JD spots one of the men and Toni follows him into 
Chinatown.  Salvatore is in a trunk and they are going to take the car 
to the crushers.  Toni kills the men there and follows the car as it 
drives off.  He stops them from reaching the crusher and takes 
Salvatore home.  Salvatore is not in a good mood.  Toni returns to JD's 
to inform him but JD has found out that Salvatore is coming down and is 
going to take this part of town.  He orders Toni to go up to the roof 
and protect Salvatore.  Salvatore comes down the street with some men.  
Toni kills any Sindacco around and then Salvatore storms Paulie's Revue 
Bar and kills all inside.  The place is now under Leone control and it 
has a "Under New Management" sign up (it will become Sex Club 7 owned 
by Luigi by the time GTA3 happens).  

Toni meets up with JD who is extremely happy about being able to manage 
the place on his own now.  But he informs Toni that Salvatore is 
meeting with a man named Massimo and he isn't sure about Massimo's 
loyalty.  So Toni heads to Salvatore's mansion and finds Massimo leave 
in a helicopter.  Toni follows it and it lands in Hepburn Heights.  
Massimo meets with some Diablos and offers them Hepburn Heights if they 
continue their attacks on the Leone Family turf.  The helicopter takes 
off again and Toni follows.  Massimo meets on a roof with some Triads 
in Chinatown but Toni can't hear what they discuss.  A Triad spots Toni 
so Massimo takes off and Toni kills the Triads.  Toni gets news from JD 
to get dressed up.  Toni arrives at JD's place and finds JD in a suit 
and very happy.  It is time for JD to be 'made' in the Leone Family.  
They head out to the road and find Mickey there with a car waiting.  
Toni gets in the driver seat and takes them over to the area near the 
crusher but the Sindaccos start following.  Toni kills them and 
continues to the crusher.  Once there, Mickey shoots JD in the back of 
the head.  Apparently they would never trust JD after he turned on his 
Sindacco leaders.  The car is now leaking blood so Toni drives it 
through town, drops Mickey off, and dumps the car in the water.

Suddenly, Toni gets a call from Vincenzo who apologizes for how he has 
acted.  He wants Toni to meet him at his place.  Toni heads over to 
Atlantic Quays and doesn't find Vincenzo at his place there.  Toni 
calls Vincenzo who says that a shipment came in and he needs Toni's 
help.  Toni heads to the boat and goes down into the cargo area but 
someone closes the door and Toni is trapped.  Several men with hockey 
masks and chainsaws chase after Toni and try to kill him.  Toni manages 
to kill him and then Vincenzo appears.  Toni has had enough and kills 
Vincenzo.  Just as Toni celebrates his victory he gets a call from 
Salvatore that there is a big problem so Toni heads to Salvatore's 
place.  When he arrives Salvatore informs him that the Diablos have 
attacked them in Hepburn Heights and he needs Toni down there.  Toni 
heads down and finds the Leone's out numbered.  Toni manages to turn 
the tide and the Leone's win the war.  Salvatore calls and asks what 
happened.  Toni informs him that they won but lost a lot of men and he 
doesn't think they will be able to hold off the Diablos from taking 
over that part of town (by GTA3 the Diablos control Hepburn Heights).  
Salvatore denies Toni's comments and says that he doesn't lose any 
turf.

Toni heads back to Salvatore's place and is told to pick up some cash 
from a warehouse in Atlantic Quays.  Toni heads over and is allowed in 
the gates.  Just as he enters some Triads set a bomb and destroy the 
building.  The remaining Triads and Leone's fight as Toni collects the 
money and kills the Triads.  He leaves the building area (this building 
is the Triad Fish Factory in GTA3).  Toni heads back to Salvatore's 
place and drops off the cash.  But Salvatore needs him right away as 
well.  Salvatore needs to speak with the mayor who is on Staunton 
Island.  The bridge isn't finished and the ferries aren't running but 
Salvatore needs to get there and wants Toni to head for the ferries.  
So they get in a car and head for the ferries but find the cops all 
over the place.  They quickly turn around and head for the bridge.  
Toni goes on and floors the gas while the cops follow.  They leap the 
bridge and just make it across, much to Salvatore's delight and 
appreciation.  They head to a safehouse to lay low for a short time.

It isn't long, however, before Salvatore takes action.  He wants Toni 
to kill Mayor R.C. Hole who is getting on Salvatore's nerves.  Toni 
heads out to the park where the mayor is jogging and kills him.  The 
security and police support is weak and Toni easily escapes after 
grabbing the mayor's phone which he delivers to Salvatore.  When Toni 
arrives back at his apartment he finds Mickey waiting.  Mickey and Toni 
are going to take a ride.  Toni is nervous (since Mickey only appeared 
this way to "make" JD) but tries to act cool as they drive.  Toni 
enters an alley and meets Salvatore who says that Toni is being 'made' 
today.  They enter a building and Toni exits a while later.  Ma calls 
him several hours afterwards and congratulates Toni.  She has even 
called off the hit on him.

Toni is relieved and happy about his situation but knows that more work 
needs to be done.  He meets up with Salvatore who wants to kidnap the 
mayor's assistant and find out who the mayor was working for.  They 
grab the assistant and put him on a boat.  But the police notice and 
chase after them.  Toni grabs a gun and destroys the boats and a 
helicopter following.  Toni gets off the boat and Salvatore tells him 
to meet up with a businessman that could be a candidate for the mayor's 
role.  Toni agrees to meet him.

So Toni heads over and finds Donald Love.  He is a strange man and 
requests that Toni get a hearse for him.  So Toni goes out and finds 
the hearse Donald specified and brings it back.  Donald then asks Toni 
to steer the votes by campaigning and destroying rival van.  Toni 
accomplishes this and is next tasked with killing some groups that are 
trying to campaign for the rival competitor, O'Donovan.  Toni kills 
them all as well.  When Toni returns to Donald's place he has found 
that the Forelli's are backing O'Donovan and have a warehouse to 
produce the ballots and machines.  Toni goes over and destroys all the 
ballots and the machines to end this rigging.  Toni is next tasked with 
protecting Donald as he heads for a meeting.  The Forelli's do attack 
but Toni kills them.  Donald then wants Toni to steal the votes from a 
van making its rounds and Toni does while replacing them with Donald 
Love votes.  Toni and Love agree to stay apart for awhile to ensure 
that no connection is made.

During this time, Toni received a call to come to the church.  He heads 
over and finds the priest there wants him to do some tasks for him.  He 
wants Toni first to steal an FBI car and get some reports from an 
informant who wants to meet the FBI.  Toni gets the car, steals the 
notes and brings them back for the father.  Toni is then told to go 
steal back some diamonds from some thieves.  Toni kills all the thieves 
and reacquires the diamonds.  He brings them back to the church.  As 
Toni enters he is next asked to cause as much chaos and destruction as 
possible to show the sinners their evil ways.  Toni grabs a fire truck 
and goes on a rampage of destruction and killing.  When Toni returns 
later on he is instructed to kill three celebrities who the priest 
claims are "false idols".  Toni goes out and manages to kill all of 
them.  Toni heads back to the church to tell the priest and the priest 
runs off in a frenzy thanking Toni for all his work.  It seems he 
wasn't a priest after all.

Toni doesn't care about this turn of events as he is called by 
Salvatore who needs his services again.  Toni gets to a payphone and 
Salvatore calls saying that the Forelli's and Sindaccos were having a 
meeting and Salvatore went to spy on it but they saw him and now he is 
pinned down.  Toni heads down an alley and kills all the men there.  He 
finds Salvatore and they leave in a limo.  Toni drives Salvatore back 
to the safehouse and they agree to meet up later.  Salvatore calls Toni 
and tells him to get to the phone at the Liberty Campus.  Toni heads 
over and Salvatore says he has a surprise for him.  Apparently, 
Salvatore rigged Paulie Sindacco's car.  Salvatore wants Toni to use 
the remote controls and kill every Sindacco and Forelli at a meeting 
with Paulie's car.  Toni gets in a black van with the controls and 
takes control of the car.  He runs down all the men while Paulie is 
helpless inside.  The men have all been killed and Paulie is no to 
blame.

Toni heads back to see Salvatore after some time and is instructed to 
kill Franco Forelli.  Apparently he knows what the Leone's did to 
Paulie's car.  Toni heads to the docks and gets in a boat and chases 
Franco.  They go back onto land and eventually Toni kills Franco.  Toni 
receives a call from Salvatore to meet an insider of theirs in the 
police department.  He is over in Riverside.  Toni heads down by the 
water and meets Leon McAffrey.  He wants Toni to join him as they go 
take out several Sindaccos.  They head out in Leon's car and kill all 
the Sindaccos they can find.  But the Sindaccos decide to chase them on 
bikes, in cars and a helicopter.  Toni manages to kill them all and 
then gets dropped off.

A short time later Toni heads back to Riverside and meets Leon.  
Apparently the Yardies want the Forelli territory in Newport so Leon 
wants to help them to pay off a debt.  Toni goes over to a Forelli 
hangout and steals a bike.  The Forelli's give chase with numerous 
bikes.  Toni leads them over to the north side of the hospital and the 
Forelli's are all killed.  Toni returns to Leon and is introduced to 
Leon's new partner Ray Machowski (who is a good cop now but a bent cop 
in GTA3).  Leon wants Toni to take a Katana and kill 20 Forelli's.  
Toni does this.  The Sindacco and Forelli numbers are increasing 
substantially and the Leone's are gaining more territory thanks to 
this.  When Toni returns to Leon he wants Toni to help the Yardies keep 
their territory in Newport.  There is a big gang war going on.  So Toni 
rushes over and kills the Sindaccos.  The Yardie leader says that one 
of his boys has been shot and he wants Toni to wait with him while they 
get an ambulance.  Toni stays with the man as more Sindaccos attack and 
Toni fights them off.  Toni manages to get the injured man out to the 
ambulance and the Yardies have won.

Toni proceeds to Leon's location and is now informed that the Forelli's 
have some armoured trucks.  Toni heads out, finds them, and destroys 
the trucks.  Once Toni is done he gets a call from Donald Love so Toni 
heads over.  There he finds Donald panicking as someone has evidence of 
the rigging and his connect to the Leone's.  Donald wants Toni to meet 
his man that has been following the transportation van.  Toni heads 
over to Newport and gets in the car with the man. He tells Toni to 
proceed along the docks and he will find the men.  Toni goes in and 
kills everyone there and takes the van.  Toni proceeds back to Donald's 
place and stores the van in a garage.  When Toni meets Donald he also 
finds out that Donald has lost the election.  He has lost $20 million 
and blames Toni.  Toni could care less.

Salvatore calls Toni shortly afterwards.  He has been arrested and put 
in jail.  Toni needs to come see him on Shoreside Vale.  Toni goes over 
and dresses like a lawyer to not look suspicious.  He goes into a 
meeting room with Salvatore who calls him Lionel.  Salvatore believes 
that the Sindaccos and Forelli's have conspired against him.  He wants 
revenge.  Toni heads out and gets some Hoods to help him.  He kills a 
number of Forelli's around the island and heads back to see Salvatore 
the next day.  Salvatore now wants Paulie Sindacco dead.  Toni heads 
down to the dam and Paulie recognizes him.  Paulie takes off in a boat 
but Toni rockets his boat and kills Paulie.  When Toni returns to see 
Salvatore he informs Toni that the Yakuza are heavily armed and looking 
to take over some Leone turf.  Toni heads back to Staunton and enters 
the Yakuza complex.  He finds a lot of weaponry and a tank.  Toni 
steals the tank and kills all the Yakuza members.  Toni then destroys 
the tank by sending it into the water.

Toni receives a call from Toshiko Kasen, the wife of the Yakuza leader 
Kazuki Kasen.  She wants Toni's help so Toni decides to head to her 
apartment so he can work the Yakuza from the inside.  When he arrives 
he meets Toshiko who explains how she hates her husband for caring more 
about the gang than her.  She wants Toni to steal more of the Yakuza's 
supplies that are coming in.  He goes to the docks and kills the Yakuza 
there and then steals a boat of supplies.  The Yakuza give chase but he 
leaves them behind.  He arrives at the ferry station on Staunton and 
sells the weapons to Phil Cassidy who admires the ferry location (by 
GTA3 this location is Phil's property and he supplies weapons from it).  
Toni returns to Toshiko's apartment.  There Toshiko tells Toni she 
wants him to destroy Kasuki's cash vans leaving the casino.  She wants 
to see the cash burn in the streets.  Toni suggests that he can take 
the cash (I would like some) but she insists it be done her way.  So 
Toni goes over to the casino and destroys the vans.

Toni returns to Toshiko's later on and she now wants her husband to 
know who is doing this.  She wants Toni to take her to the opera so he 
leaves and gets her limo.  He picks Toshiko up, gets a tux, and drives 
to the opera.  The Yakuza spot Toshiko and Toni at the opera but don't 
attack.  The mafia (Sindaccos most likely) also see and don't agree 
with the racial mix.  They attack Toni who kills them.  They get back 
in the limo and drive off avoiding more attacks.  Toni returns Toshiko 
back to her apartment.  She contacts Toni shortly after and wants him 
to come back right away.  When he arrives she informs Toni that Kasuki 
has found out about them and they are heading over to the apartment 
soon.  Toni doesn't want to wait so he heads to the casino to kill them 
first.  He first kills some Yakuza in Newport and then heads to the 
casino.  He kills the men there and then goes to the roof to face off 
with Kasuki.  They fight with Katanas and Toni wins.  Toni takes 
Kasuki's Katana back to Toshiko as proof.  She is happy and sad.  She 
says that there is nothing more for her and jumps out to window to her 
death.

Toni receives a call from Donald who needs Toni's help.  Toni goes over 
to a small apartment on Shoreside Vale and finds Donald a mess.  He 
apologizes to Toni for blaming him and needs Toni's help to get back 
his cash.  Donald wants Toni to kill his former mentor, Avery 
Carrington, and steal his plans for a new company called Panlantic 
Corporation.  Toni and Donald head to the airport and chase after Avery 
who is surrounded by Columbian Cartel cars.  Toni kills Avery and 
steals the plans for Donald and drives him back to his apartment.  Toni 
arrives there a short while later and finds Donald frantic.  Reporter 
Ned Burner (who posed as the priest in the church) has pictures of Toni 
killing Avery.  Toni heads to the church and scares Ned into giving him 
the files.  Ned takes Toni to his hideout and a flashbulb goes up 
blinding Toni.  Ned takes off and Toni chases him.  Toni catches up and 
kills Ned.

Toni returns to give Donald the good news and Donald is ecstatic.  He 
wants Toni to go collect some guests for a party he will have to 
celebrate (the guests are, of course, dead bodies).  Toni first grabs 
an ambulance with Avery in it and takes his body to an airport hanger 
with Avery's private jet in it.  Toni then goes back to the church and 
grabs a hearse with Ned Burner's body in it.  He brings it to the 
hanger as well.  A short time later Toni gets a call from Donald asking 
him to go to 8-Ball's place.  Toni heads over and 8-Ball tells him that 
the explosives will cost $100,000 and he needs time.

Toni returns a few days later and the bombs are ready.  Apparently, 
Toni needs to go underground and set the charges in Newport to destroy 
the Forelli's market area so the Panlantic Corp. can have some land to 
work with.  Toni drives over but is met by Forelli's.  He loses them 
and gets to Staunton.  Toni goes into the tunnels and sets the timers.  
He busts through some gates and manages to get out just as the entire 
market area and underground tunnels explode (that is why this area is 
under development in GTA3).  Toni returns to Donald who needs to leave 
Liberty City now.  The Columbians surround the house Donald is at but 
Toni kills them all.  Toni drives Donald to the hanger with Avery's 
private jet and they wish each other fair well.

Toni receives a call from Salvatore, he is getting out.  Apparently the 
Sicilians have been causing the wars between the families and don't 
want Salvatore out of prison.  Toni heads over and escorts the convoy 
with Salvatore to the courthouse.  Several Sicilian cars come by but 
Toni takes care of them and makes it to the courthouse with Salvatore.

A few days later Toni gets a call from Salvatore.  He is out of prison 
and back home.  Toni returns to the house and finds out that the 
Sicilians have kidnapped the mayor.  Salvatore and Toni set out to 
rescue him.  They head to City Hall and kill the Sicilians.  Salvatore 
finds out that they have the mayor at the pier.  They head over and 
kill the men there.  Toni and Salvatore get in a boat and head for an 
island where the mayor is being held.  Toni fights off the boats that 
follow while Salvatore drives.  They get to the island and arrives at 
the top to find Massimo has planned it all.  Salvatore curses him as he 
gets in a helicopter.  Salvatore chases after the mayor while Toni 
shoots it down and kills Massimo.  Salvatore returns with the mayor and 
they head back to Salvatore's house.

When they arrive Salvatore tells Mayor O'Donovan that since they 
rescued his life he now owes the Leone's and they now own him.  He is 
forced to agree.  The mayor is taken back to City Hall.  Toni and 
Salvatore celebrate and Salvatore meets a cousin from Sicily.  He tells 
Salvatore that he never wanted to hurt them and hopes there can be 
peace now.  Salvatore agrees.  As the man leaves Salvatore states that 
he never trusted a piece of garbage like the man.  The elderly man says 
under his breath, "Every dog has his day..." (this proves true when 
Salvatore is killed in 2001 by Claude).

E10. 2001

The events of GTA 3

In early 2001, Catalina and Claude pulled off a heist on the Liberty 
City Bank.  They head out of the building as Claude shoots a security 
camera.  Catalina turns the corner and a shot is heard.  Claude turns 
and finds one of the men shot down by Catalina.  She shoots Claude and 
leaves him for dead as she takes off with another man (Miguel).  Claude 
is found and charged with the robbery.  He is sentenced.  While the 
transport van is taking them over the Callahan Bridge it is stopped.  
Columbian Cartel members come out from trucks surrounding the van and 
take an elderly man with them.  Claude and another man (8-Ball) attack 
the remaining guards and take off their handcuffs.  They look over at 
the centre of the bridge and see a bomb place there.  It explodes and 
creates a huge hole in the Callahan Bridge separating Portland from the 
rest of the city.  Claude and 8-Ball grab a car and 8-Ball asks Claude 
to drive as his hands are all tapped up (from the events of GTA 
Advance).  Claude drives to a small place and they change their 
clothes.  8-Ball directs Claude to a man he knows, Luigi, at the Sex 
Club 7.  Claude drives over and 8-Ball goes in the building while Luigi 
comes out and talks with Claude.  Luigi tells Claude to go pick up 
Misty from the clinic.  If he does good then there might be more work 
for him.  Claude goes to the clinic, picks Misty up and drives her back 
to Luigi's.

As Claude thinks about being betrayed by Catalina and the revenge he 
wants on her he knows that he needs to work his way through the 
criminal world to find her again.  Claude returns to Luigi's for more 
work.  When he arrives he is confronted by the security man, Mickey, 
and handed a letter.  The letter is from Luigi who wants Claude to go 
to the docks and kill a drug dealer who has been supplying SPANK to 
Luigi's girls.  Claude heads over to the docks and kills the man.  He 
takes the dealer's car and has it resprayed and delivered to a garage.  
Claude returns to Luigi's place and is told by Luigi that the Don's 
son, Joey Leone, is looking for some action from his usual girl, Misty.  
Claude is instructed to pick her up and take her to Joey's garage.  
Claude does this and Joey tells him to come back for some work.

Claude doesn't take Joey up on his offer just yet as he returns to 
Luigi's to continue work there.  Luigi storms out upset about a Diablo 
guy that has been pimping his women around the Sex Club 7.  Luigi wants 
Claude to take care of him.  Claude finds the man driving around town 
and destroys the man's car killing him.  Claude again heads back to 
Luigi's.  Luigi informs Claude that there is a policeman's ball by 
Callahan Bridge and he wants Claude to collect his girls and take them 
there to make some cash.  So Claude heads around town and collects as 
many of Luigi's girls as he can and brings them to the ball.

Luigi has no need for Claude anymore so Claude heads off to Joey's.  
When he gets there he hears a phone ringing and picks it up.  The owner 
of the Bitchin' Dog Food Factory, Marty Chonks, needs Claude for some 
tasks.  He assigns Claude with bringing some people to his factory so 
he can kill them and Claude is left to destroy the car and the 
evidence. Marty asks Claude to bring his banker over because he has 
been ripping Marty off.  Next Claude brings some street thugs over who 
Marty hired to break into his apartment.  They now want more money.  
Then Marty needs some cash and Claude brings his wife over to kill her 
and get the insurance.  Finally, it appears that Marty's wife had a 
lover and it is a man that Marty owes money to.  Claude brings him over 
but Marty is killed by the man.  Claude steps out and kills the man and 
then leaves the factory for good.

Claude later arrives and Joey's garage and enters.  Joey wants Claude 
to kill Lips Forelli as the Forelli's have owed Joey money for too 
long.  Claude goes to Marco's Bistro and steals Lips' car.  He takes it 
to 8-Ball who fits it with a bomb and Claude brings it back.  When Lips 
returns to his car Claude activates the bomb and the car explodes, 
killing Lips Forelli.  Claude goes back to Joey's and is now instructed 
to kill a vendor in Chinatown that is pushing SPANK.  Claude heads over 
and fights through numerous Triad members and kills Chunky Lee Chong.

When Claude returns to Joey's he is informed of a payroll van around 
Chinatown.  It is impervious to bullets and Claude must use a car to 
ram it.  He heads over and rams the van.  The security inside leave the 
truck and Claude takes it to Joey's lockup.  Claude goes back to Joey's 
garage and finds Joey with another man (not in a gay way).  Joey 
introduces this man as Toni Cipriani and apparently Joey has been 
telling Toni alot about him.  Claude is directed to take Toni to the 
Cipriani's Ristorante in St. Marks.  But as they leave Toni wants them 
to make a stop at Mr. Wong's Launderette in Chinatown because he needs 
to collect some overdue protection money.  When they arrive Toni enters 
but is ambushed by some Triads.  He jumps in the car and they speed off 
to the ristorante.  Toni says that he will get the Triads for this as 
Claude drops him off.  Claude receives a page from a man named El Burro 
who wants to talk with him in Hepburn Heights.

Claude returns to Joey's place since Joey said he needed a driver for a 
heist he was planning.  But when Claude returns Joey needs him to do 
something else.  Apparently some Forelli ran his mouth and was killed 
for it.  The body is in the trunk of a car in Callahan Point.  Claude 
is told to take the car to the crushers to get rid of the evidence.  
Once Claude finds the car and gets in it the Forelli's drive up in two 
cars and try to run him off the road.  Claude avoids them and manages 
to get the car to the crushers.  Claude goes back to Joey's place and 
Joey tells him he has some friends who are planning to hit the Bank of 
Liberty (different than the one Claude broke into at the beginning 
intro).  They need a good driver and Joey recommended Claude.  Claude 
goes to the safehouse in St. Marks and grabs the men.  They go to the 
bank and steal the cash but someone trips the alarm.  Claude 
frantically avoids the cops and makes it back to the lockup.  Joey 
doesn't need Claude's services right now so Claude heads to Toni's 
restaurant after a day of rest.

Entering the restaurant, Claude finds Toni who informs him that the 
launderette won't pay protection.  He wants Claude to destroy their 
laundry vans and kill anyone that gets in his way.  So Claude heads to 
Chinatown and accomplishes this.  Claude returns and finds a letter 
from Toni.  The launderette has agreed to pay so Claude must go collect 
the money.  When he goes to Chinatown and grabs the money he is 
surrounded by Triads.  Claude kills them all and returns the money to 
Toni's place.  Claude finds another letter when he drops off the cash.  
Apparently the Don has called a meeting.  Claude needs to get the limo 
from Joey's, grab Joey, pick up Luigi, and then return for Toni so they 
can head to the Don's place together.  Claude does just this but when 
he grabs Toni the car is ambushed by Triad vans.  Claude fights them 
off and gets to Salvatore's place.  They all go up and greet the Don 
who wants a world with Claude.

Salvatore sees a good future for Claude and wants Claude to take the 
Don's woman, Maria, out for a good time.  Maria doesn't like the 
situation and refers to Claude as 'Fido'.  Claude and Maria get in the 
limo and she instructs him to head for the Chinatown train station.  
When they arrive Maria meets Chico who gives her the 'usual' supply of 
drugs.  He informs her of a party in Atlantic Quays and she agrees to 
check it out.  Claude drives Maria over to a warehouse and she tells 
Claude to wait in the car.  The police suddenly arrive for a narcotics 
bust and the party people run out and a shootout begins.  Maria comes 
out and gets in the car.  Claude drives Maria back to Salvatore's 
place.  Maria tells Claude how impressed she is with his 
professionalism.  She wants to see Claude again.

When Claude returns to Toni's he finds another letter.  Toni writes 
that they're at war.  The launderette hasn't paid protection and the 
Triads have a fish factory as a front.  Toni wants Claude to kill some 
of the Triad high officials.  Claude goes to Chinatown and finds a 
warzone.  He kills some Triad leaders as they fight with Leone Family 
members.  Claude heads over to the fish factory in Atlantic Quays and 
kills the men there as well.  Claude heads back to Toni's place and 
finds another letter (does this guy ever show up?).  Toni instructs 
Claude to finish the Triads for good.  8-Ball has rigged a dustcart and 
Toni wants Claude to take it to the fish factory and destroy it (much 
like the Triads did in 1998).  Claude grabs the dustcart and takes it 
in the facility.  He parks it near some tanks and runs like hell.  The 
building explodes and Claude leaves the area successfully.

Claude returns to Salvatore Leone's house.  Claude meets Salvatore who 
suspects one of the bartenders is leaking information to the 
Columbians.  Claude must follow him to see if it is true and then kill 
him if it is.  Claude goes over and follows the man.  Keeping his 
distance, they arrive at the docks and Curly Bob meets with Miguel and 
Catalina.  He informs them that the Leone's are in a war with the 
Triads and Joey has stirred up some bad blood with the Forelli's.  He 
gets his supply of SPANK for his services and they leave.  Claude 
drives oevr to Curly Bob and runs him down for the betrayal.  Claude 
returns to Salvatore's house to give him the news.  When Claude returns 
Salvatore suspects that the ship near where Curly Bob led Claude is the 
SPANK factory for the Columbians.  He wants Claude to destroy it and 
orders him to visit 8-Ball for some explosives.  Claude heads over and 
is asked to get $100,000 to cover to expenses.  Claude gievs it to him 
and they head to the boat.  8-Ball waits for Claude to kill the men on 
the boat and then heads in and sets the bomb.  The ship explodes, 
sinks, and 8-Ball makes it off safely.

Claude returns to Salvatore's and is praised for his work.  Salvatore 
just needs Claude to do one more small job before everything is done.  
He needs Claude to grab a car and take it to the crushers.  As Claude 
heads over to the vehicle he receives a page from Maria who informs him 
the car is a trap and for him to come to Callahan Point.  Claude 
proceeds over and finds a freaked out Maria with an Asian woman.  Maria 
tells Claude that Salvatore believes they are going behind his back 
because she said they were an item (smart one) and was offering Claude 
to the Columbian Cartel to make a deal.  Maria introduces Asuka to 
Claude and she wants them to head over to Staunton Island before the 
Leone's show up.  They proceed over and go to Asuka's apartment.  Asuka 
tells Claude that a safehosue has been setup for him and that he should 
come by later.

Claude leaves and visits the warehouse setup for him and hears that the 
Callahan Bridge has been repaired.  Claude returns to Asuka's and she 
wants Claude to prove he isn't working for the Leone's before they can 
do business.  As Claude leaves he hears Maria comment on Asuka's 
'massager' (if you don't know what that really is then email me ;)).  
Claude heads oevr to the Sex Club 7 where Salvatore is.  He hides on 
the rooftops and then kills Salvatore as he leaves.  The Leone members 
give chase but he avoids them and leaves.  Claude also receives a page 
from King Courtney, the leader of the Yardies, who wants to meet 
Claude.

When Claude returns to Asuka's he finds her happy with Salvatore dead 
but apparently the Mafia has lookout posts on Staunton trying to find 
Claude.  This is causing problems with Yakuza operations and Asuka 
wants Claude to kill them and end the vendetta.  Claude is introduced 
to Asuka's brotehr, Kenji, who operates the Yakuza casino.  Claude goes 
around Staunton and takes out these lookout posts and ends the Leone 
Family threat.  He proceeds over to the casino and finds Kenji.  Kenji 
wants Claude to break a Yakuza member out of prison.  Claude finds a 
police car, rigs it with a bomb, and takes it to the police station.  
He places the car beside a wall and blows it up.  Claude grabs the 
Yakuza member and they escape the police station.  Claude avoids the 
police and takes the man to a dojo.

Claude returns to the casino and Kenji says that to his shame he hasn't 
been able to repay a debt to a man.  The man enjoys cars and Kenji 
wants Claude to collect a few to complete the man's collection.  Claude 
drives around town and picks up the 3 specified cars and takes them to 
a garage.  Claude goes back and Kenji is upset.  The Columbians are 
meeting with the Yardies to make a deal even after the Yakuza have told 
the Cartel to stay out of their business.  Kenji wants Claude to meet a 
Yakuza man, steal a Yardie car, and go to the meeting.  Claude heads 
out and does this.  They show up to the meeting and when the Cartel get 
out of their cars, Claude and the Yakuza man kill them all.  Claude 
grabs a briefcase from the bodies and returns it to the casino.  When 
Claude enetrs he is instructed to go collect the protection money from 
various companies.  Claude drives around town and collects to money but 
when he comes to a market and the place has been robbed.  The owner 
complains that the Yakuza are useless and Claude needs to go get the 
money.  He heads over to Hepburn Heights and finds some Diablos 
protecting the money.  Claude kills them and returns all the cash to 
the casino.

Claude goes to meet with Kenji who immediately yells at him.  It 
appears that Claude's efforts to stop the Columbians and Yardies 
becoming allied didn't work.  The Yardies are selling SPANK on the 
streets.  Kenji wants Claude to kill them and erase the shame from 
himself.  Claude goes out and kills every Yardie he can find on the 
street.  Claude returns to Asuka's place to help her with some affairs.  
Claude finds a letter there for him (does no one want to talk to 
Claude?) and it informs him that Asuka and Maria have taken a vacation 
as some reporter is snooping around and should be out in the bay.  
Claude grabs a police boat and chases the reporter.  He shoots the boat 
up and it sinks, killing the reporter.

A few days later Asuka returns and Claude joins her at her apartment.  
She wants Claude to delievr payment to the Yakuza's man in the LCPD.  
He is paranoid so Claude must get to the payphone in Torrington and 
await instructions.  When Claude arrives he is lead around to different 
payphones on Staunton Island until he is instructed to meet the man in 
the toilet block in Belleville Park.  Claude heads in and finds the man 
and hands the cash over.  The man is Ray Machowski and he tells Claude 
to meet him back here for some work.  Claude stays there and Ray tells 
him that another bent cop, McAffrey (the same guy from GTA LCS), has 
just squealed and Ray doesn't want to be implicated.  Claude is 
instructed to kill him in his hideout in Newport.  Claude heads over 
and burns the apartment and then kills McAffrey as he attempts to 
leave.

Claude returns to the toilet block and Ray wants Claude to help out his 
friend, Phil Cassidy, with a Columbian Cartel problem.  So Claude heads 
north into Rockford and meets Phil in his base.  He says that the 
Columbians will be coming soon.  When they arrive Claude and Phil take 
them out and then Phil offers Claude great prices on his hardware as a 
thank you.  Phil also adds that if he had Claude in Nicaragua with him, 
he would still have his arm (or if you didn't blow it off with 
Boomshine).  Claude returns to the toilet block to inform Ray.  Ray 
gives Claude the task of collecting some evidence of his friend at a 
"morgue party or something" that could lead to arrests and prosecution.  
Claude finds the truck driving around and rams it to get all the 
evidence.  Claude then burns it and receives a page from Doanld Love to 
meet him.  Claude goes and visits him.

Claude enters the building and gets to Donald's penthouse.  It appears 
that Donald is back on his feet after the problems back in 1998.  He 
owns numerous radio stations and his company 'Love Media' is into 
almost everything.  Donald thanks Claude for taking care of the 
evidence and wants Claude to rescue his "oriental friend" who is being 
held by the Cartel in Aspatria.  Claude grabs a Cartel car and enters 
the complex.  He kills the Cartel and rescues the man (who looks like 
the man the Cartel broke out of the prison van that Claude was being 
escorted in).  Claude drives the man back to the Love Media offices.

Claude returns to Love's penthouse and is told that "Nothing drives 
down real estate prices like a good old fashioned gang war..."  Donald 
wants Claude to kill Kenji and make it look like the Cartel did it.  So 
Claude steals a Cartel Cruiser and drives to the parking structure in 
Newport.  He goes to the top and drives by, killing Kenji and then 
leaves.  Claude returns to Donald's penthouse and Donald wants Claude 
to grab a boat and pick up some packages in the ocean that will be 
dropped by a plane.  Claude heads over and gets under Callahan Bridge.  
Claude recovers the packages, avoids the police, and returns the 
packages to Donald's place.  He hears over the radio that the Shoreside 
Lift Bridge has been repaired.  

Claude visits Ray back in the park and Ray suspects his current partner 
is a rat.  Ray suggests that Claude go out and get a police boat and 
kill the rat.  Claude does so and kills Ray's partner.  Claude returns 
and Ray yells at him.  Apparently, Claude failed to kill the witness 
(probably McAffrey) that will implicate Ray.  He is being moved from 
the hospital and Ray wants him dead.  Claude drives up to the ambulance 
and knocks the witness out.  He is in a body cast and Claude must run 
him over to kill him.  After many attempts Claude is successful.  
Claude returns to Ray to inform him but he has no time.  He's a marked 
man and must get to the airport to leave town.  Claude drives Ray over 
to Francis International Airport.  He avoids the CIA on the bridge and 
Ray is safely on a plane.  Ray informs Claude of a lockup with some 
'presents;.  Claude goes back to the lockup on Staunton and finds some 
weapons and Patriot.

Claude goes back to Asuka's apartment and finds a letter.  It informs 
Claude that one of the Yakuza's drivers, Tanner, is an undercover cop 
who is "more or less useless out of his car" (a nice rib on the Driver 
series for PlayStation).  Claude heads to the casino and kills the cop 
even when backup officers show up.  Since Asuka is out still, Claude 
returns to Donald Love's penthouse.  He finds Donald who tells Claude 
that the packages he picked up in the ocean were a decoy.  The real 
package is in the plane, in a hangar, at Francis International Airport.  
Customs was stripping the plane when Donald paid for them to stop.  
Claude heads over and finds the Columbians surrounding the plane.  
Claude kills them and the package is missing.  He finds a van that says 
"Panlantic Co." (remember that company?) on the side so Claude heads 
for the construction site in Newport.  Claude arrives and finds 
Columbians everywhere.  He kills them and heads up a lift to the 
building.  Claude finds Catalina and Miguel there.  Miguel hands Claude 
the package but Catalina shoots Miguel and escapes.  Asuka appears and 
is angry about Kenji's death.  She says that everyone saw the Cartel 
kill Kenji (unaware it was Claude).  She is going to work over Miguel 
for information and asks that you return for work later.  Claude takes 
the package to Love's penthouse.

Claude reenters Love's penthouse and is asked to accompany his friend 
to Pike Creek to have his object authenticated.  Claude follows the 
Securicar and manages to keep the Cartel off it as it reaches it's 
destination.  Claude goes back to Love's penthouse and is now needed to 
take the Securicar and act as a decoy to get the object out of the 
building.  Claude heads over, grabs the truck, and successfully leads 
the cops away.  Claude returns to Love's penthouse but finds an empty 
box and Love is gone.  Claude decides to return to see Asuka.

Claude arrives at the construction site and finds Asuka still torturing 
Miguel.  Asuka informs Claude that Catalina has three death squads with 
the sole purpose of hunting Claude down.  Asuka wants Claude to act as 
the bait and lure them into a Yakuza trap.  So Claude gets their 
attention and heads to Pike Creek.  He leads them in and the Yakuza 
kill all the Cartel members.  Claude returns to Asuka.  He is told that 
the Columbians have a front company, the Kappa Coffee House which they 
use to push SPANK.  She wants Claude to destroy all their stations in 
Liberty City.  So Claude heads all over Liberty quickly and destroys 
all nine stands.

He returns to find Asuka showing Maria the art of torture.  Asuka 
informs Claude that a plane is coming into Francis International 
Airport with more SPANK.  She wants Claude to destroy it and collect 
the drugs.  Claude heads over and finds some Columbian memebrs there, 
which he kills and then he destroys the plane and collects the 
packages.  Claude heads back and finds Asuka and Miguel dead with a 
note.  It is from Catalina who says she has Maria and for Claude to 
bring $500,000 to the Villa at Cedar Grove.  Claude immediately 
collects the cash and heads over.  He is confronted by Cartel members 
who check him for weapons and let him in.  Catalina confronts him and 
takes the money.  She tells the Cartel to kill him but Claude kills 
them all.  Catalina heads off in a helicopter and Claude follows in a 
car.  She gets to the Cochrane Dam and there are Cartel members all 
over.  Despite this, Claude kills them and as Catalina takes off in the 
helicopter again he destroys the helicopter with a rocket.  Claude 
rescues Maria and they leave the area.  They walk along to top of the 
dam and Maria won't shut up and as the screen fades a gunshot is heard.

H. Thank You/ Closing Comments

Well, that about sums everything up.  It took me several weeks to 
compile this document as I did it after work or on weekends.  I may 
just bask in the glory of completing the guide (around 71 pages on 
Word!) or I may go head first into my next one which is a Metal Gear 
Solid Series Guide.  That one will be a killer.

First of all, thank you to Rockstar Games for producing an excellent 
series of games.  Keep it up.

I would like to thank Adam Marx (CanadianDude) for his Series Guide as 
I read it and it inspired me.  While my writing style and coverage is 
different, I enjoyed reading his work.

I would also like to thank Robert Allen Rusk (RARusk) as his 
walkthroughs were very well written and helped in certain parts where I 
forgot some missions.  I recommend any of his walkthroughs as they are 
very detailed and helpful.

Thanks to anyone else that contributes comments (those who did have 
been credited where they added the info) and such and I will see you 
all on the World Wide Web.  You can be sure to read my reviews of other 
games on GameFAQS.com or TheScratchPost.com.  You can find me posting 
away on the forum at Stablewars.com.
